Description Adam Roben (:aroben) 2009-04-21 08:22:10 PDT
r42182 changed build-webkit to invoke pdevenv instead of invoking Visual Studio or VC++ Express directly. But this has caused the build to fail when following the build instructions on webkit.org and using VC++ Express. The build fails because windows.h cannot be found. Presumably this is because pdevenv passes the /useenv switch to VC++ Express, and this causes VC++ Express to ignore the Platform SDK paths that were added to it as part of the build instructions.

I'm not really an expert here, but this looks sane enough to me.
