Make moc obey the preprocessor environment variable for include paths
C preprocessors augment their standard list of include paths from the environment: Unix preprocessors use $C_INCLUDE_PATH (for C) and $CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH (for C++), plus CPATH for both, whereas MSVC uses the an environment variable simply called "INCLUDE". Handling this for MSVC is particularly important because the VCVARSALL.BAT script sets the necessary #include paths in the environment for important things. Without that being parsed, moc won't find some #defines, like WINAPI_DESKTOP_FAMILY. [ChangeLog][moc] qmake and moc now cooperate to use the Visual Studio environment variables (set by the VCVARSALL.BAT script) to find system include files. A possible consequence is that moc parses application headers slightly differently, depending on #if conditions that depended on macros that previous versions had not seen #define'd. Implementers of other buildsystems are advised to pass the --compiler-flavor=msvc option to moc. Change-Id: I7e06274214d1939b0124e5b4bf169cceaef9ca46 Reviewed-by: Olivier Goffart (Woboq GmbH) <>
