[vtkusers] [vtk-users] VTK6.2 VS2013+Qt5.5.0 - Linker error not able to open 'vtkCommon.lib'

The problem you see is that VTK 5's vtkCommon.lib was split in VTK 6 into
vtkCommonDataModel.lib, vtkCommonColor.lib,
vtkCommonComputatinalGeometry.lib, vtkCommonCore.lib,
vtkCommonExecutionModel.lib, vtkCommonMath.lib, vtkCommonMisc.lib,
vtkCommonSystem.lib, and vtkCommonTransforms.lib. This is the
modularization John referred to and its purpose was to make it possible to
link to only small parts of VTK if you don't need all of it.
