Build Information:
Paste the COMPLETE build information from "Help->About Wireshark", "wireshark
-v", or "tshark -v".
In the instruction, step 2 "Windows SDK for Windows 7 ..." is worded in a way
that suggests you will only install this if you want to build a 64 bit binary.

This does not seems to be the case because you will need the win32.mak file
from the SDK regardless whether you will be building for 32 or 64 bit.

At least for me, I installed Visual studio and service pack first, then later
on realized I need to get my hands on win32.mak file. I then tried to install
SDK.  It failed because it wanted to install a c++ complier that is older.  I
eventually succeeded in installing SDK after I deselected both the C++ compiler
and redistributable package.

The guide should also mention that you may need to create the INCLUDE
environmental variable.  For me creating this variable only worked throughout
the windows properties GUI, not the set INCLUDE= command.

The guide should also mention putting the equivalent of C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin in PATH.
