SPUserPoll Build Error

Hi Experts,

I downloaded a web part source code from codeplex and needed to do some alterations to match our needs, the soloution is built fine except the deployment project which I need for the setup files to be updated. I get this one single error

Error      1      The command ""C:\Program Files\Microsoft Cabinet SDK\BIN\MAKECAB.EXE" /F DeploymentFiles\BuildSharePointPackage.ddf /D CabinetNameTemplate=SPUserPoll.wsp /D DiskDirectory1=BuildResult\Debug" exited with code 3.      SPUserPollDeployment


I have no idea what this means, you can look at the complete source code at this url

Thanks in advance

MakeCab.exe, is the executable file will create a cabinet file. the wsp solution package file is a cabinet file with a different extension. You can rename a wsp file to .cab and then extract the files from it. Its similar to a zip file.
