\o Using this engine requires installing the \e{Debugging Tools for Windows}
32-bit package (Version 6.10), which is freely available for download from the
\l{http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx}{Microsoft Developer Network} or
directly from \l{http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/installx86.Mspx}{Microsoft}.

When building \e{Qt Creator} using the \e{Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler},
the location \c{"%ProgramFiles%\Debugging Tools for Windows"} will be checked
for the required include files.
