Default Building Perl

Dear Programmers
I'm trying to build perl from source code (Perl 5.8.8 Source for unix and windows) on windows vista biz, I know how to build it on windows 2003 server / xp pro, but when trying to build it on vista from cmd (command line) (Visual studio 2005) it gives me an errors. here are ERRORS:
nmake fatal error: U1064: MAKEFILE not found and no target specified
Unsuccessful make(B): code:512 at buildext.pl line 142
nmake fatal error: U1077: '..\miniperl.exe': return code 0x2

I know the 2nd error because of the first error. I already checked makefile.win on perl\win32 which we have to specify the path for perl destination, and everything seems OK.

Dose anybody have any idea how to fix it?? (I did search on google.com. but no luck)

Best Regards
Mani H.
