Error: incorrect header check

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

Having a problem compiling a new project using Electron 2.0.9/3.0.0-beta.

Looks like #24 is coming back. Might be a CDN/replication problem (I’m in the US, not China).

$ cmake-js compile --log-level verbose "${MYPROJECT_DEBUG:-'-D'}" -G Ninja --runtime electron --runtime-version="$(grep -oE 'ELECTRON_VERSION=[^
]+' Dockerfile | cut -d= -f2)" -O bin/native --arch x64

Is this a known issue, or something that has to be fixed on Electron’s side?

Just ran into this. So it’s necessary to both specify the runtime and runtime version, otherwise the download URL will be wrong. E.g. --runtime=electron --runtime-version=6.0.2, while the 6.0.2 is acturally the Electron version, not the Node version Electron used.

sounds like this was cmake-js being called with the wrong parameters, do I dont see anything that needs to be done here
