Several comments:

1. Please review the following (if you've not already done so): 
http://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsdg_html_chunked/ChSetupWin32.html#ChSetupMSVC

Note that since you appear to be using VC8, you will need to change 
config.nmake file to indicate that you're using vc8 (if you've not already 
done so).

2. The current Wireshark distribution is compiled using VC6 and thus does
not give the warnings about sprintf & etc.

The Wireshark WIndows make files specify "stop on warning" to ensure that all 
warnings are fixed. That's why the 'fatal error' exit.

If the config.nmake specifies the correct value for MSC_VARIANT it's possible 
the compile will then complete with no problem.


Please let us know if this helps or if you encounter further problems.
