    1616== Common Build Errors ==
    1717=== Error spawning cmd.exe ===
    18 Sometimes, Visual Studio complains that it 'cannot spawn cmd.exe'. Should this happen, check if both your Cygwin\bin folder and c:\windows\sytem32 are both in the Visual Studio list of executable files (Tools -> Options -> VC++ Directories).
     18Sometimes, Visual Studio complains that it 'cannot spawn cmd.exe'. Should this happen, check if both your Cygwin\bin folder and c:\windows\sytem32 are in the Visual Studio list of executable files (Tools -> Options -> VC++ Directories) and that your Cygwin\bin appears after the Visual Studio bin folders (Otherwise, the wrong link.exe will be used; that is, the Cygwin link.exe will be used instead of the Visual Studio tool of the same name).
    1919=== Missing Autogenerated Files ===
    2020If you have the Visual Studio IDE open while you are performing an {{{update-webkit}}}, you can sometimes run into a strange problem where Visual Studio is unable to locate the autogenerated files.  These files are usually things like HTMLNames.cpp, which are generated by Perl as part of the WebCoreGenerated target.
