2. I had to disable building with geoip because:

A little digging finds that the Windows Wireshark version of the GeoIP library(1.5.2) is a bit old; The current version (on GitHub [1]) is 1.6.6 and has had various fixes made since 1.5.2.

I also note that the 1.6.6 GeoIP.h no longer has the macro definition for snprintf so the MSVC2015 GeoIP compile problem obviously won't occur using the latest version.

I don't really know to create the GeoIP libraries (and couldn't easily do a 64 bit version anyway) so I'll leave this as a ToDo for others (Gerald ?).

(Obviously there's no urgency for this).

May be directly move to GeoIP 2 ?


I think the code is available from here:
