For last few days i am trying to checkout the chromium source code and i faced a issue while checking out. Always i get a XMLHTTP request error whenever i run “gclient”. Finally i could able to solve this issue. You need to do the following:
Change this line in depot_tools\bootstrap\win\get_file.js
xml_http = new ActiveXObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP");
xml_http = new ActiveXObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP.3.0");
And you have to add “$(DXSDK_DIR)\include” into gl project’s include list.
Create a folder named “directxsdk” under src/third_party.
Create a folder named "files" under "directxsdk"
Copy the "Lib" folder from $(DXSDK_DIR) into "files" folder.
