Hi all,

Could you please share experience how to successfully compile qtwebkit23 on windows with MSVC and QT 4.8.2?  I followed the guide, http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/BuildingQtOnWindows.
o  Run perl Tools\Scripts\build-webkit --qt and cancel the script after the derived sources are all generated
o  Run perl Tools\Scripts\build-webkit --qt --qmakearg="-tp vc". This will generate MSVC project files and then it will fail
However above two commands always failed with follow error and didn't generate WebKit.sln.

/qtwebkit-23/Tools/Scripts/VCSUtils.pm line 394.
Calling 'make  -j2' in D:\working\qtwebkit-23\WebKitBuild\Release

===== BUILD FAILED ======

The build failed with exit code 2. This may have been because you

  - added an #include to a source/header
  - added a Q_OBJECT macro to a class
  - added a new resource to a qrc file

as dependencies are not automatically re-computed for local developer builds.
You may try computing dependencies manually by running 'make qmake' in:


or passing --makeargs="qmake" to build-webkit.
