I am trying to build the openvswitch.msi from git branch However the built msi fails to install at the end with the error “netcfg failed to install open vswitch hyperv switch extension.”

I am wondering what could be causing this? Any thoughts in getting around this issue will be greatly appreciated. Please note that the .msi is generated in windows server 2012 r2 machine.

Regards, Krishna.
