[texworks] Building TeXworks on WinXP

I realized that I had 2 qmake,... one in c:\programmes\QT\bin (this was 
for Linguist) and one in c:\program files\KDE\bin.
After checking and finding Linguist in KDE, I uninstalled QT (and mingw).

I also modified the path, not using %KDEDIRS% but the real c:\program 
files\KDE, and qmake was fount.

Here I modified as:

qmake -tp vc -spec C:\Progra~1\KDE\mkspecs\win32-msvc2008

for the name problem inherited from DOS (space in "program files".)

I could create the .vcproj file.
But compilation in msvc crashed with (sorry I use French):

------ Début de la génération : Projet : TeXworks, Configuration : 
Release Win32 ------
RCC res\resources.qrc
'C:\PROGRAM' n'est pas reconnu en tant que commande interne
ou externe, un programme exécutable ou un fichier de commandes.
Project : error PRJ0019: Un outil a retourné un code d'erreur à partir 
de "RCC res\resources.qrc"
Le journal de génération a été enregistré à l'emplacement 
TeXworks - 1 erreur(s), 0 avertissement(s)
========== Génération : 0 a réussi, 1 a échoué, 0 mis à jour, 0 a été 
ignoré ==========

I join the BuildLog.htm file.

It looks like that again the problem is with the space in "program files".

Now I suppose that they are many places where this is refered to!!

A solution would be to move KDE to another folder as "c:\programmes" (in 
fact it is what I had to do for QT and mingw).

Hope this help.
