Have you uncommented the line

# Visual C++ 8.0, _MSC_VER 1400, msvcr80.dll
in Config.nmake?

The default is Visual C++ 9.0

    while compiling source code of wireshark i am getting error as  match686.obj file not found, i have match686.asm file, i think its not getting compiled during the execution of makefile.nmake, wha may be the problem please help.


I successfully compiled trunk on win32 just a little while ago.  Can you post the last few lines of the compilation output so we can see exactly what has gone wrong.  In addition are you compiling from svn or zip sources?

I think somethings not right in your build environment, I haven't built with VC2005 for some time though.

Can you post the output of "set" from your build command prompt, removing any personal or company information?

I know it's not in the developers guide, but personally with a version as old as VC2005 I used to install the latest SDK and set my build environment to use the tools from there as there have been many bug fixes.  The simplest way to do this (after installing the SDK) is to navigate to the Start Menu entry for the SDK and open the "CMD Shell".  If the defaults aren't good for you (e.g. on a 64 bit OS the default is set to x64 compilations, then simply copy the start menu entry and edit the target tacking on "/x86".  See the "SetEnv.cmd" file itself for additional flags.

Having got a suitably prepared command shell, then cd to the Wireshark directory and run the normal build procedure.
