This is using a VS2010 solution file. Dependencies are installed via NuGet. Package restore has been enabled for this solution. That means that in order to build, you have to be running a recent version of NuGet and have "Allow NuGet to download missing packages during build" enabled in the settings as shown here.
Note: if you having trouble upgrading NuGet, see this
After the dependencies have been downloaded by NuGet, it should build. Run the exe in place or put it somewhere in your path for convenient access.
