I setup the Windows build environment for Wireshark 2.0 and I'm trying to build. I should have all the versions of things from the Win32/Win64 Step-by-Step guide. I downloaded the source tarball from website and have made no modifications to anything not in the guide.

I think this is the issue I'm having because the docbook projects fail to build.

To turn on more logging, and log to a file append the following to the msbuild command:
You might need to quote some of these parameters depending on the command shell you use. When debugging builds, it's helpful to remove the

So, if I get the source using git this problem goes away. The tar balls for windows are either old, not complete, or just wrong.
