Has anyone had success building a package on a windows machine?

I am trying the following command with no luck (perhaps my flags are
incorrect?).  At this point I am stuck. Any help greatly appreciated.

(BTW - I have no idea why it cannot find sh.exe since I have it is a
directory that is specified in a path statement)
