On windows the command is nmake. Are you using cygwin?

I'm having a problem trying to build Wireshark 0.99.6 source on Windows.
I've searched on Google, etc. but can't find anything that helps.

Everything looks good until it comes to compiling 'filesystem.c':


C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~3\VC98\INCLUDE\exdisp.h(1423) : error C2032:

I used the following steps:

1.  get source from SVN
2.  make -f Makefile.nmake distclean
3.  make -f Makefile.nmake setup
4.  make -f Makefile.nmake all

I've built many versions of the Ethereal and Wireshark before and I can
build 0.99.4 (using a different library directory).

I have set:


I'm using MS Visual C++ 6.0 on Windows XP with cygwin.

Thanks in advance.
