while executing this line:

I found out that the make.exe does not exist in the src\native\windows\run
. Where can i find it...
Thanks

We use cygwin's make. Other Win32 make distributions may work as well but we haven't tested such.

No… You need to execute "ant build-installation-wix" under Cygwin. The base Cygwin install does not include make so you have to explicitly check it during the Cygwin installation or a subsequent Cygwin update.
