Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Again broken windows build?
Date: Fri, 31 Aug 2007 11:59:14 +0200

Hi all,

on my win32 platform with MSVS2005EE (with Service Pack 1, is this
important???) and rev. 22760 the build process fails with the following
errors according to the wireshark-tap-register.c (in /wireshark/gtk/)
beginning in line 5:

wireshark-tap-register.c(5) : error C2182: 'File': forbiden use of type
wireshark-tap-register.c(5) : error C2146: Syntaxerror: missing ';' before
wireshark-tap-register.c(5) : error C2059: Syntaxerror: ';'
wireshark-tap-register.c(6) : error C2182: Syntaxerror: missing ';' before

and so on for all folowing items/lines in wireshark-tap.register.c

I updatet all win32libs using the "nmake -f makefile.nmake setup" command,
so everything should be fine? I didn't done any changes to the acording
makefiles in the gtk directory.

Another question:
Is the VS Redistributable Package (vc_redist_x86.exe) neccessary for the
build process? I am developing a plugin and wondering why the dll file
doesn't works on other pc (in the plugin directory of their Wireshark
installation). Now i installed this redistributable package but it also
doesn't work.
Can you help me?
