Sowjanya,

There are probably some residual custom build events that you need to remove.  Right click on your Visual Studio project, Properties, Build Events and remove whatever is in there.

Also, if you only want to use the software, then please download the official release.  There is no requirement to use the source code unless you want to make modifications.  I'm guessing that given you haven't used the product yet that you don't know what you need to modify.  I recommend downloading Faceted Search 2.5 beta with Enterprise Library 3.1 from the Releases page (along with documentation).

Cheers,
