I tried it again, but ethereal says:"could not load module..." after I copied the cygwin compiled plugin into the plugin directory of the win32 ethereal version.
The cygwin compiled plugin has a size of about 100kb and the msvc compiled plugin has one of about 70kb, so there is a difference between the plugins. Does somebody know another possibility to compile a plugin with free tools to use it with the win32 version of ethereal?
