Title: Re: [Wireshark-dev] About Wireshark Dissector development

I have been building this week creating my own dissector in Wireshark 1.0.4, successfully using VS2005 under Win XP Pro.  No issues whatsoever.  You just have to adjust the makefile a little.  Quite easy to do.

    Use VS2008; that's what is currently used for the Wireshark Windows build.

    AFAIK VS2008 should work AOK on Windows XP ald Windows XP is certainly
    OK for Wireshark development.
