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?

Yes, I also have VS80sp1-KB926748-X86-INTL.exe installed for  the reason I  forgot.

Regarding your mods,
2. We're referring to C:\wireshark-0.99.6\tools\win32-setup.sh right?

Yes.

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

Yes.

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

Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 8.00.50727.762

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!
