Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Re : versioninfo error
Date: Tue, 11 Aug 2009 12:17:54 +0000 (GMT)

I don't know if you started only with the developper's guide, but I used the following link to start, and I found also a VERSIONINFO error in the code provided in this url, because in plugin.rc.in I had:
PRODUCTVERSION @[email protected],0
whereas the right code is
PRODUCTVERSION @[email protected]

Maybe your problem also comes from a tricky error like I had.

Hoping this might help you,

devudp.rc(5) : error RC2167 : unrecognized VERSIONINFO field;  BEGIN or comma ex
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\r
c.EXE"' : return code '0x2'
