Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Compiling under MSVC 6.0 - simple Q, clear cut A ?

thanks for the willingness to assist.
I did one thing : created an empty directory c:\wireshark-win32-libs
and then ran the nmake -f makefile.nmake all
with no further problems whatsoever.
Since my install was a "clean" one (no previous wireshark builds etc.)
I guess this may happen to others as well.
If I may, one other short Q - the manual does not specify how I can use the MSVC IDE
to debug wireshark, which was my main reason for building it.
Is there a way to do that?

I have faithfully followed the Cygwin/packages installation, done the
distclean and verify_tools stages. At the setup stage I get an error at the
glib part:
bash tools\win32-setup.sh --appverify cl link nmake bash
bison flex env grep /usr/bin/find perl env python sed
unzip wget
Checking for required applications:
cl: /cygdrive/d/PROGRA~1/MICROS~1/VC98/BIN/cl

nmake: /cygdrive/d/PROGRA~1/MICROS~1/VC98/BIN/nmake

No HTTP proxy specified (http_proxy and HTTP_PROXY are empty).
Downloading gtk2.6/glib-2.6.6.zip into , installing into glib

ERROR: Can't find glib
So while I fully believe it "cleanly" works for many, obviously there is
something missing in the manual.
Any tips would be much appreciated.

Just faithfully follow the developer guides guidelines on setting up your
development environment, including cygwin and its tools, as well gathering
the libraries.

Tried it a couple of times, never failed on me.
