Hello all


I am a new user of Wireshark1.0.0 and an setting up my build environment on WindowsXP.  I  have followed the instructions as mentioned in the Developer user guide

and everything was working fine until I encountered this problem.

When I run the command


nmake -f makefile.nmake setup


it results in the following error after it has unpacked a lot of package.



****** user-guide-24665.zip ******

No HTTP proxy specified (http_proxy and HTTP_PROXY are empty).

ERROR: Couldn't unpack C:\WIRESH~2.0/user-guide-24665.zip


NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'c:\cygwin\bin\bash.EXE' : return code '0x1'





The problem is related to unpacking if user-guide zipped package and before I can do anything the build fails and the remaining zipped package

Necessary for compile while using the command “nmake -f makefile.nmake all “  are not downloaded and intalled.


Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.


Thanks in advance
