I am executing the following steps:
I am going to and clicking on download.
I am unzipping the source and moving it to another directory.
I am opening up the solution in VS2012.
And I get the following build errors:

Error 1 The "StyleCopTask" task could not be loaded from the assembly <mylocalmachine>\SlabSource\build\packages\StyleCop.\lib\StyleCop.dll. Could not load file or assembly 'file:///<mylocalmachine>\SlabSource\build\packages\StyleCop.\lib\StyleCop.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask.

StyleCop.dll was not installed in the build packages directory. You can manually download the package from NuGet and copy to the build\packages directory or the open a VS Command Prompt and navigate to the build directory and type "msbuild". It will set everything up, compile, run the tests etc. Once StyleCop is installed you can open in VS2012 and compile.
