Windows: Add Qt Creator PATH update tip for missing SQL client dlls

After a successful build most users are struggling with loading failure due the fact that the client libraries folder is not contained in the PATH environment variable. This tip helps them overcome that in a controlled manner with Qt Creator. Change-Id: I2dc5c9c6d8d8976686d74c369b6e1683c479f35c Reviewed-by: Jerome Pasion <>
