On windows, you can't run Wireshark from the build directory.  The makefiles
temporarily create an environment that can run the exe to generate some docs
etc., then destroy it.

I have a batch file that I run after building that copies all the dll's and
exe's to the appropriate places that a previous standard install has created
and I then run the app from there.

You can also install nsis and make an installer, but that takes a lot longer
than just copying the executables.
