My bad. I agree with no makefile. There was a Wireshark.xcodeproj in the wireshark directory, not in the build directory.

Not sure what to say but I’ll chalk that up to something odd in my environment. It’s working as expected in 3.4.1. I could go back and check 2.8.12 however I’m wondering if that is necessary.

I agree there are no Xcode instructions. I was referring to the build files being in the build directory. Like I said above, chalked up to something in my environment.

I am trying to create support and possibly instructions for Xcode.
