I have no idea what you mean by "invasive".

The whole point of Qt is that it's cross-platform. If you use Windows specific stuff, you lose that. You might as well just go use XAML or whatever this week's favourite windows GUI system is.

If you're going to use Qt, the single thing I would say to you is that it has a way it wants to do things. If you start trying to bend it to fit another way of working you will spend the rest of your natural life chasing message dispatching through objects or other horridness.

If you "go with the flow", use the Qt resource generator, write generally portable code and don't try anything overly complicated, you'll get a cross-platform app out of the end of it. Yes, including games with OpenGL graphics.

The plugin you need for vs2008 is not the same one as for vs2005 (which may be where you're having trouble). ISTR the 2008 plugin was a pain to find and download on their site, you want Qt-vsintegration-1.4.0.exe -- it's a self extracting exe. 1.2.2 only works with vs2005 IIRC. (It may only be available if you have the commercial licence).
