You are most likely getting these errors when opening the Visual
Studio project because you are missing one (or both) environment
WEBKITOUTPUTDIR -- The path where the build places the auto-generated
sources, libraries, and resulting binaries.
WEBKITLIBRARIESDIR -- The path to the build dependencies included in
the "WebKitLibraries.zip" installed during update-webkit. This is
where the "unicode" headers are located.
This is discussed in http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingOnWindows.
I think if you set them to the appropriate paths in your environment,
you will find that you can open, run, and debug via Visual Studio.
