Thanks for that reply. I'm glad someone confirmed it works using VC 2005EE. What about the Platform SDK, did you use Server 2003 R2?
 
Regarding your mods,
2. We're referring to C:\wireshark-0.99.6\tools\win32-setup.sh right?
3. Do you replace all occurences of xcopy (in if statements only) with "c:/WINNT/system32/xcopy"? For example,
if exist wireshark.pdb xcopy wireshark.pdb $(INSTALL1_DIR) /d
Becomes:
if exist wireshark.pdb "c:/WINNT/system32/xcopy" wireshark.pdb $(INSTALL1_DIR) /d
 
I tried changing my build environment to VC6 and it now works on Windows 2000. I may just end up sticking with this build setup, as it resolves my issue and seems less problamatic than using VC2005EE. I think the "Win32: Step-by-Step Guide" should state at the top that if you have VC6, use it instead of 2005EE.
 
Thanks and regards,
Greg

I did the clean build again on HP/compaq nc8000 with 0.99.6 source
I unzip the source under c:\wireshark-0.99.6
Here are some modifications I did.
1. config.nmake MSVC_VARIANT=MSVC2005EE
2. dos2unix win32-setup.sh  win32-setup.shc (my cygwin use unix line convention)
3. Use full path such as "c:/WINNT/system32/xcopy" to replace xcopy in if statement of Makefile.nmake

Then the build,
nmake -f Makefile.nmake verify_tools
nmake -f Makefile.nmake setup to update the c:\wireshark-win32-libs
nmake -f Makefile.nmake distclean
nmake -f Makefile.nmake all

During the build there is only one annoying thing. The nmake failed sometime, complaining "xxx is not a reconized ...". Then what I need to do is run the "nmake -f Makefile.nmake all" again.

Hope this will help. I didn't have the problem you had. One thing I noticed is I have
verion .762 of Program Maintenance Utility, but you have .42

nmake -f Makefile.nmake verify_tools

I'm assuming when I do the verify_tools step, it confirms that I'm using nmake/cl/link from VS8 based on the output:

the wiki page suggest you ONLY use nmake/cl/link from VS8 (true name of Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition),
but make sure NOT use nmake/cl/link from 2003 server SDK R2 under windows 2000.

Hope this will help.

Yes.  You also need to make changes to config.nmake to indicate the use
of VC6.

I guess folks are:

a) Using a combination of EE and SDK that works on W2K
b) Not testing/using on W2K
c) Using VS2005 Pro or better with a different SDK.

We have had several threads in the past few months with this issue, but
no-one who has had the issue has stayed the course until we resolved it.

You may want to buck the trend!
