I am attempting to build Chromium from a tarball on Windows.
I've followed most of the build instructions
, excluding checking out the code.
However, when I execute gyp to set up my project, the following error occurs: Environment variable "SYSTEMROOT" required to be set to valid path
python build\gyp_chromium -Dtarget_arch=x64 --toplevel-dir=src/ -depth .
I've tried using both cmd.exe and the Developer Command Prompt for Visual Studio.
The problem described in this issue
seems to match my symptoms but none of the suggestions solved my problem.
I've found a number of other forum threads about this issue but none of the suggestions in those solved my problem either.
