Many Daniel's (__noop's)  projects use these variables (like this
It may be a stupid question, but I do not know how this is done:
How do you create these variables?

Those look like "build variables". Make/Makefiles, CMake, Qmake, etc. use variables like that to "know" or "find" libraries, headers, etc. when the project or code is being compiled.

Yes, these variables point to headers and libraries,  but in Visual Studio.

How i can create these variables?

Sorry, that part I don't know. I don't use Visual studio.

These are environment variables Daniel uses. For WinXP you can find "My Computer" in the Star menu, right click and select properties. Choose the Advanced tab and near the bottom there is a button for Environment Variables.

You will need to start VS again after setting the environment variables.

Win7 is likely the same but I can't recall and don't have access to it right now.
