I ran into the exact same problem (amongst a lot of others); The guideline on webkit.org it far from helpful. So I dug through the net and found the following two pages. Hopefully they can be of some assistance. Pay close(!) attention to the first - a lot of good hints!

Subject: [webkit-dev] Webkit Building errors in VC++2005

I tried to build webkit in VC++ 2005.. I was about to solve the earlier problem but now  when i debug an error says that 'Error    1    Error result 1 returned from 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe'. i have also edited the embed manifest in the manifest tool in configuration properties in each project  to No but still the error is there...
build log is listed below...

Creating temporary file "C:\cygwin\home\Saumya\webkit\WebKitBuild\obj\ImageDiff\Release\BAT00007355205172.bat" with contents


@echo off

set PATH=%SystemDrive%\cygwin\bin;%PATH%

if exist "C:\cygwin\home\Saumya\webkit\WebKitBuild\buildfailed" grep XXImageDiffXX "C:\cygwin\home\Saumya\webkit\WebKitBuild\buildfailed"

if errorlevel 1 exit 1

echo XXImageDiffXX > "C:\cygwin\home\Saumya\webkit\WebKitBuild\buildfailed"

if errorlevel 1 goto VCReportError

goto VCEnd


echo Project : error PRJ0019: A tool returned an error code from "Performing Pre-Build Event..."

exit 1



Creating command line "C:\cygwin\home\Saumya\webkit\WebKitBuild\obj\ImageDiff\Release\BAT00007355205172.bat"

And there is another error saying ' C2370: 'CSSValue' : redefinition; different storage class    C:\cygwin\home\Saumya\webkit\WebKitBuild\obj\WebCore\DerivedSources\CSSValueKeywords.h  '

Please Help...
