Applied the patch for MSI/MSM task ([ 1153718 ] MSI/MSM task have problems with files with spaces).
created binary files for NantContrib and copied them to the bin directory of Nant folder.

When I tried to build my project with a simple build file below

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<project name="NantTest" basedir=".">

<msi output="GuruTest.msi" sourcedir="bin" failonerror="true" verbose = "true" />

</project>

I keep getting the following error

[msi] Building Installer Database 'GuruTest.msi'.
[msi] Compressing Files...
[exec] Starting 'cabarc (-r N C:\HOMEWARE\NantTest\bin\GuruTest.cab *)' in 'C:\TEMP\tmp849.tmp'

BUILD FAILED
