I am trying to use xamarin-component from Windows and I got a file not found error:

I think the problem is that its looking for mdoc, and not finding it in the lib folder. If I move mdoc.exe and the dll from the lib folder into the same folder, I then get this error:
mdoc: Could not load file or assembly 'Mono.Cecil, Version=0.9.5.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=0738eb9f132ed756' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
See `mdoc help' for more information.
I managed to find this in Program Files(x86)\Xamarin Studio\bin. Then I needed SharpZipLib, and the version in that folder was an older version, so then I had to find version 4.84 of SharpZipLib online somewhere.
Finally, the packaging process worked. But this took a while to figure out. I am not sure how this is supposed to work by default?
This has been fixed for a while in newer version of xamarin-component.
