I installed the Sandcaste, HTML Workshop, Sandcastle Help File Builder and the "Sandcastle presentation file patches" file.

I set the paths to the approproiate folders (HtmlHelp1xCompilerPath, HtmlHelp1xCompilerPath, OutputPath and SandcastlePath). Tried to build the help file with the settings below:

HelpFileFormat: HtmlHelp2x
Prileminary: True
PresentationSyle: VS2005

All the other settings are left to their default values.

After build the help file, here is the output below.

Build completed successfully

I don't see the chm file after the build. I can get chm files with other HelpFileFormat and PresentationStyle settings except with this combination.

I get the above error above with HtmlHelp2x and VS2005. Is this a bug?

Recheck your paths to be sure you've got the right paths for the right compilers and that everything is installed were you think it is. "HTML Help Workshop" is usually for the HTML Help 1 compiler, not the HTML Help 2 compiler.
