What version of the MS compiler (VS ????) is used to build the Windows distribution?

I downloaded the source and build the executable on Windows XP.
Everything went quite well. Kudos to the development team.

I ran the built app
(C:\wireshark>C:\wireshark\wireshark-gtk2\wireshark.exe), selected
"Capture", selected "Interfaces", hit "Start" on my "Broadcom NetXtreme
Gigabit Ethernet Driver", and it
crashes with the following:
   AppName: wireshark.exe     AppVer:     ModName: msvcr80.dll
   ModVer: 8.0.50727.762     Offset: 0001ebf3

This does not happen with the executable I downloaded.

Built executable from source is Version 0.99.5
Downloaded executable is Version 0.99.5 (SVN Rev 20677)

I am dying to get started on my protocol dissector, but this is holding
me up!

Any ideas? Can I supply any more information?

You don't indicate your build environment, but as msvcr80.dll is mentioned I
assume that you're using VS2005 in some form.

If this is the case, I think the problem is likely to be adns_dll.dll.  The
version that is downloaded is built with VC6, and doesn't play well with
VS2005 (VC8).  Open the adns project (adns_win32.dsw) in VS2005, convert it to
the VS2005 project format and rebuild it.  Link wireshark again and you should
be good to go.
