I'm trying to create a project using the QGIS class "QApplication" but it seems to fail due to an error I can´t understand.

I'm using this build version of QGIS made for QT5.7, VS2015, W10 x64 and my main.cpp just containts the following lines:

#define CORE_EXPORT __declspec(dllexport)    

#include "QGisTest.h"
#include <QtWidgets/QApplication>    

#include <qgsapplication.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    QApplication a(argc, argv);
    QGisTest w;
    w.show();
    return a.exec();
}

And when I try to build it, these errors show up:

I also added to the project this "moc_qgsapplication.cpp" and wrote the line:

#define CORE_EXPORT __declspec(dllexport)

to avoid other compilation problems and linked to the project the QGIS and QT 5.7 libs.

Any idea how to fix it?

    Hi, this is a general compiling and linking question which does not show any GIS component. As such I would recommend to ask it on a page like stackoverflow.com . Evenmore as it is based on an unofficial preview build of QGIS which makes the audience for this question very small. – Matthias Kuhn Dec 21 '16 at 13:17
