Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] newbie building on cygwin, windows... can't find pcap

I use MSVC++ v6.0 & Cygwin.  I recently spent better part of a week looking at how to build entirely under Cygwin (just to support one person who has .net 2005).  I finally concluded that it is way too much work.  I opted to install MS Virtual PC (now FREE) & setup an environment that can be moved from host to host (keeping to the copyright laws).

What debugger were you going to use, DDD??
