I am new to Sandcastle and just trying to test it out against a process I created.  Everytime I go to build the documentation I get the following error:

V:\MPS\ConsoleApplication\MPS.Cons.ProcessJHPayments\SandCastle\Help\Working\GenerateRefInfo.proj(38,5): error MSB6006: "XslTransform.exe" exited with code -1073741790.

-------------------------------

SHFB: Error BE0043: Unexpected error detected in last build step. See output above for details.



Any ideas as to what is happening?  Any help is greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

Sorry, I don't recall seeing that error code before.  I'd suggest uninstalling Sandcastle, making sure nothing is left in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Sandcastle folder, and reinstalling.  Apply the Sandcastle Styles patch too if you haven't done so already.
