Wireshark source builds but fails to run with
"application error" with MSCV6.  MSVC200EE
builds and runs fine for me on WinXP.

For the record:

When building with VC6, the "application error" is a result of the fact that the current Lua DLL depends upn MSVCR90.dll.
One work-around is to build Windows VC6 Wireshark w/o Lua support by 
commenting out the Lua line in config.nmake.

That being said: I'm not sure what the deal is with Lua requiring MSVCR90; I expect someone with more knowledge will be able to answer that.
