+The MSBuild Extensions zip contains 4 separate installations: 
+x86 & x64 for .NET 3.5 and

 To compile, install the above requirements and run `MSBuild.exe` in

 For example, using PowerShell:
-    set-alias msb C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\MSBuild.exe
-    msb /P:Platform=AnyCPU /Configuration:Release
+    set-alias msb C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\MSBuild.exe

+Without PowerShell:
+If you have VS2010 open the **Visual Studio Command Prompt**, 
+or the **Developer Command Prompt** if you have VS11.
+If you have only the free VS shell and F# compiler installed, you'll need to add

+	PATH=%PATH%;C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319
+	msbuild /p:Configuration=Release
+`msbuild` without options will build the Debug configuration for platform AnyCPU.
