I've tried MSVC8 pretty much following the MSVC7 hints, including
recompiling zlib, which I know work because I've used MSVC7 before, and
I got probably 50,000 warnings about deprecated and insecure functions.

In openssl.h I had to change the typedef for X509_NAME and all the
places it is used to something else because of some error I suspect (but
couldn't prove) is a name clash. X509_NAME_SCREWS_UP_MSVC8 seems to be
acceptable to the compiler.

Then near the end I get errors about the application incorrectly calling
the C library, and neither wireshark not tshark will run.

There's no point in being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes.
