> Tony, I haven't compiled with VCExpress for some time so maybe this is a new issue, but I was able to compile with VCExpress before without a problem. I have a VM image with VCExpress and will try to compile with/without your patch tonight.

Yes, I followed those instructions and installed all service packs. However, my environment may not be completely typical...

I use Visual Studio 2008 for all of my development on chromium/webkit. Everything works great there, no problems. However, when I went to use the build-webkit/run-webkit-tests scripts, they wouldn't recognize VS2008, so I installed VSExpress 2005 along side it (following the above instructions). With https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=39296 and this patch, I was able to get build-webkit/run-webkit-tests working. So I thought it would be useful to contribute this up for others.

If you think it will be useful, I'd be interested in modifying build-webkit to use Visual Studio 2008 if available (gracefully falling back to other version). Thoughts?
