The fontspec documentation uses lots of external fonts, some of them 
proprietry, as examples. Unless you have all the fonts installed, you 
won't be able to compile it.

If you just want to test if your setup/workflow is working, try the 
fontspec example document  (fontspec-example.ltx). It should exist in 
the same folder as fontspec.pdf.

Hope this helps,
