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.

Good luck!
