maybe the new approach to build the desktop client could help you with the build:

HI. I will try craft when i don’t get any answer for win build. It should be actually global problem when doing with guide which link i posted as well

ping! anyone. can you help?

Got solved with git submodule update --init --recursive

@taavim Maybe check the new documentation pull request from @dschmidt about building the client with Craft:

We’d love to hear your feedback! Is there something that needs more detailed explanation?
