Please let me if you need more information



First of all there is now Wireshark 1.2.7, yet. There tarballs of SVN
versions and a few compiled prereleases.
You never stated exactly what installation you did, either build by
yourself, a prerelease or otherwise.
Refer to the developer guide to see what's involved with the setup of a
Windows development environment, especially concerning vcredist.exe
