I'm having some trouble with the installation of the automated builds in Windows 8.1 64-bits. Everything goes well but when I try to load a Lua plugin Wireshark shows the message "Lua Error ... attempt to index global 'base' (a nil value)".

AFAIK, 'base' should be defined by init.lua. But I cannot find any trace of that file neither in the installation directory nor in the exe itself (as shown by 7-Zip).

I just downloaded version 1.99.8-267-gbcf7533. Below are the details of the downloaded file:

My MD5: 957facb2e2c82b28ff9101c8bd09c060

I've been trying with different versions since yesterday and all had the same problem. Even the released version, 1.99.7[1], doesn't have init.lua. Only the stable release, 1.12.6[2], has that file.

'console.lua' and 'dtd_gen.lua' are also missing.

Anybody knows what's going on?


Some recent commits, 0997129 and c00e469 should have fixed this.
