I experienced a problem building the documentation in my first try with the Sandcastle Help File Builder.
This is what I've done: first of all I installed Sandcastle, than I installed this builder and finally the VS2005 SDK in order to use the Help 2.x compiler; I created a new shfb project putting in manually my dlls and xmls (I'v got them in different paths) and finally I tryed to build after having set the correct paths.

BUILD FAILED: Unexpected error in last build step. See output above for details.

I really don't know why it's looking for the exe in the VS SDK folder (I set the right Sandcastle folder) and I saw that strange double slash in '.....\Sandcastle\\ProductionTools\MRefBuilder.exe'.
