The src package is built on unix. Updating the epan/wslua/Makefile.am will
Make the unix build include this files in the src package.

If you build from a a SVN checkout there isn't a problem in the first place.

The link you sent for revision 19764 only lists one file that was changed, namely epan/wslua/Makefile.am.  This file is only used by automake, isn't it, which isn't used in a Windows build environment, so I don't think this will help.

An attempt to fix it was checked in in rev 19764
I have not had the time to test it though.

Ämne: [Wireshark-dev] 0.99.4 packaging fails on Windows

I successfully compiled Wireshark 0.99.4 on a Win32 platform, but when I ran "nmake -f Makefile.nmake packaging", it failed as follows:

File: "libtasn1-3.dll" 538493 bytes
File: "lua5.1.dll" 114688 bytes
File: "init.lua" 5611 bytes
File: "..\..\epan\wslua\console.lua" -> no files found.
Usage: File [/nonfatal] [/a] ([/r] [/x filespec [...]] filespec [...] |
   /oname=outfile one_file_only)
Error in script "wireshark.nsi" on line 335 -- aborting creation process NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:/program files/nsis/makensis.exe"' :
return code
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Bin\ MAKE.EXE"' : return code '0x2'


It seems that the wireshark.nsi file includes these 2 lines [335-336], but neither file is present in the epan\wslua\ directory:

File "..\..\epan\wslua\console.lua"
File "..\..\epan\wslua\dtd_gen.lua"

Did "nmake -f Makefile.nmake" truly succeed and these 2 lines should simply be removed from the wireshark.nsi file, or should these 2 files actually be there and something went wrong during compilation, or something else?  I commented out the 2 lines and the installer seemed to build and install OK, but I guess I just wanted to make sure nothing is missing, such as the ..\epan\wslua\template-init.lua file, for example.

Thanks in advance,
Chris Maynard
