Unable to compile the example experts on Visual Studio 2010 ultimate

You cannot vote on your own postHi,

I'm a linux programmer and a newbie at Windows programming using VS. I'm trying to develop an expert for Netmon 3.4. I dowloaded the example SDK and followed the setup instructions according to the document. I installed the strawberry perl and the WiX tool-set (3.5 in my case). When I try to do a debug build the compilation goes fine and I can execute the program too. But whenever I try build the solution in release mode, I get the following error:

Error    1    The command "cd C:\Users\CodeMonkeyJD\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\ExpertSDK\ExpertExample\
cd ..\ExpertMSI
LaunchMSIBuilder.cmd Release x64 "C:\Users\CodeMonkeyJD\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\ExpertSDK\ExpertExample\settings.txt" "C:\Users\CodeMonkeyJD\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\ExpertSDK\ExpertExample\bin\x64\Release\" "ExpertExample.exe" "C:\Users\CodeMonkeyJD\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\ExpertSDK\ExpertExample\msi\ExpertExample_x64.msi"" exited with code 255.    ExpertExample

Can somebody help me in getting my setup correct? My system details are : Win 7 x64, VS 2010 Ultimate, Netmon 3.4 x64.

I had a feeling that the documentation provided with the project was for VS 2008. It will be great if somebody can upload an example project from VS2010.
