Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Ethereal to Wireshark issues

One have to remember though to run nmake with the install-deps build target after every recompilation of the source (for any change you make). Otherwise Wireshark is started with the old compiled code. I can't remember the amount of times I have been trying to debug my code and it just does not seem to be executing what I just rewrote.
Why is the install-deps build target not a default operation when 
building on Windows? Is there a reason for it?

Hey all,

	Using the install-deps build target fixed the problem.  It works
like a charm (well... it loads the plugin).  Now the only problems that
I have are ones with my code.   And I can deal with my code.   Thanks so

Isn't that why we have the install-deps build target?

It actually removes the 0.99.2 directory after it builds the

On windows, you can't run Wireshark from the build directory.  The

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
and I then run the app from there.

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