ISDEV : fatal error -6041: Internal build error

Does anybody has an idea why this error could be happening? Is there an official website for the errors explanations?

The error comes up nearly at end of build:

Data1.cab built
Files built
ISDEV : warning -6487: If you intend to distribute this upgrade as a patch, you should author the 'Patch Optimization' setting on the Advanced Settings panel of the Release Wizard.
