I know there is a project libbitcoin-qt.vcxproj, but I have issues with building it. Is there another solution how to build bitcoin-qt.exe (only VS)?
There is documentation about how to build with visual studio on this link. It works fine for me.
I've built all of the executables except bitcoin-qt.exe following this instruction. Please tell how have you built this exe. Oct 9, 2018 at 14:05
"Solution and project files to build the Bitcoin Core applications (except Qt dependent ones) with Visual Studio 2017 can be found in the build_msvc directory." Does it mean that I can't build bitcoin-qt.exe with VS? If yes, then why do we need libbitcoin-qt.vcxproj file in build_msvc? Oct 9, 2018 at 14:20
Independently of how you go about doing this, building with VS is not a recommended or supported configuration (beyond testing reasons). If you run a system built that way you lose the advantage of the enormous amount of testing put in by users and developers on the supported builds.
At a minimum you should make sure that all the functional tests pass on your build, though this is generally good advice for any build.
