I tried to build a WinForm application, but seems the builder halt.
Info: BuildAssembler: Building topic N:WindowsApplication20
Info: BuildAssembler: Building topic T:WindowsApplication20.Form1
Info: ResolveReferenceLinksComponent: Preparing to query MSDN topic URL web service.

And there is another DLL file, which contains a windows Form class, the build will halt too.
Info: BuildAssembler: Building topic T:A.B.Client.FormBase

Is there any setting for Windows Forms classes? Please advice.

It's probably getting hung up trying to contact the MSDN web service to resolve the reference links. Set the SdkLinkType project property to None so that it skips the web service. It should build just fine then. The only other alternative is to wait for it to finish. On a slow connection, that can take a while. See the FAQ in the help file for this and similar questions and answers.
