I am using Windows 7 as OS.Visual studio 2010 as the build tool.I  have copied the source build for Win32 fand placed under C:\wireshark. edited the  config file for the Visual studio 2010.

Also I am not clear about using the wget  to install libraries. 

Thanks
Krishna

Please let us know if the info helps to fix your problem.

If so, we'll need to update the Developer's Guide (or add a test to themakefile.nmake or something ....).
