I followed the process you described for "update", changing the "\" to "/"
At compilation I was asked to save the "TeXworks.sln" file, which I did
(perhaps a note to be added to the instructions, I do not remember
seeing that the first time); and compilation went very fast and succeeded.
The new version (/) is working as the old one (\). :-\ or :-/

Now one remark, for the update you write:
=============
Then run
{{{
svn update
qmake -tp vcapp
}}}
=============
it should be: "qmake -tp vc" like for the first creation, "vcapp"
doesn't work!! Your very first instruction (in the orginal document)
was: "qmake -t vcapp"
(Or perhaps I mistyped!!)
