What version of Windows and what version of VC are you using ?
What version of Wireshark are you trying to build ? 1.4 ?

It looks like you are using VC6.

If so, that probably (definitely ?) won't work with reasonably current versions of Wireshark (such as Wireshark 1.4).
VC9EE (VC 2008EE) is available for download from Microsoft (free) and is 
what is currently used to build Wireshark.

See http://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsdg_html_chunked/ChSetupWin32.html for info.
