(1) Did you completely follow, especially the `gclient sync` step?
(2) Did you note that, at least the first time, `gclient` needs to be run from `cmd`, not PowerShell or any other shell?

(3) In the future, can you post any logs as text, not screenshots?

As Peter suggested, this file is generated by gclient sync. If this is the first failure when people fail to run gclient sync then maybe we should adjust so that it detects this and prints a helpful error message. We've had some luck with similar improvements in the past.
