Hello All,

          Debugging the issue further I am amble to see that its failing to
launch remote inspector because its unable to find the inspector.html file.
Its failing in condition in InspectorServerQt.cpp
void InspectorServerRequestHandlerQt::tcpReadyRead()
           QFile file(path);
            // It seems that there should be an enum or define for these
status codes somewhere in Qt or WebKit,
            // but grep fails to turn one up.
            // QNetwork uses the numeric values directly.
            if (file.exists()) {
                response = file.readAll();
            } else {
                code = 404;
                text = QString::fromLatin1("Not OK");


Its failing in if condition where in it checks if the file exists or not.

It looking out for file " :/webkit/inspector/inspector.html".

In order to cross check if this file is present or not I checked the
Webkit.qrc file and qrc_webkit.cpp file.
In both the files this file exists. In qrc_Webkit.cpp it is in form of an
array of hex values.

I think this html file will be part of executable or webkit library.

But I am not sure about the reason why is it not working and failing on

Please help.
