Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Compilation error on Windows with VC 6

Hi,

I could successfully compile the version 1.0.0 tarball with Visual C++ 2005
Express Edition and Platform SDK Server 2003 R2. However I am getting
compilation error when I use Visual C++ 6.0 instead of VC 2005  EE.

The dissectors I compile using VC2005 EE won't work with Wireshark 1.0.0.0
released binary as the binary was apparently compiled with VC6. (I get
'specified module could not be found' error with the dissector DLL compiled
with VC 2005 EE, even though the DLL is present in the 'plugins' directory)

I am attaching the compilation output with the errors below for your
reference. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
