 call "\\SBCDISTRO01\PITSU_Tools\Downloads\vmwaretasks-63131\trunk\\build.cmd" vixcom /p:Configuration=Debug
)" exited with code -1. VMWareLib

 The command "@echo off

 call "\\SBCDISTRO01\PITSU_Tools\Downloads\vmwaretasks-63131\trunk\\build.cmd" version /p:Configuration=Debug
)" exited with code -1. Version

Do you have MSBuild Community Tasks installed? There's a list of things in the Contributing section of the CHM.

  1. Install a command-line Subversion (SVN) client (not TortoiseSVN Shell Extension).

  2. Install Visual Studio 2008.

  3. Install MSBuild Community Tasks 1.3.

  4. Install NUnit from

  5. Install Sandcastle Help File Builder, which includes Sandcastle and HTML Help Workshop, to build the documentation.

  6. Check out the source code using SVN from

  7. Open a command prompt and build the project.

    build all
    This should succeed without errors.

It might work with 2010 too, but may need some work.
