Hi Tengfei,

Dear all,

Recently I am trying to build my own wireshark. I followed with the tutorial here:

Everything works fine before I build it, where I got tons of errors. All the errors seem point to this file: C:\Development\wsbuild64\ui\qt\qtui.vcxproj

This is my setting:
set CYGWIN=nodosfilewarning
set WIRESHARK_BASE_DIR=C:\Development
set QT5_BASE_DIR=C:\Qt\5.5\msvc2013_64
cd C:\Development\wsbuild64
cmake -DENABLE_CHM_GUIDES=on -G "Visual Studio 12 Win64" ..\wireshark

Following are the part of the erros when I excute 
msbuild /m /p:Configuration=RelWithDebInfo Wireshark.sln

(there are too many of them so I just past part of them, but if you see the error information, all goes this file: C:\Development\wsbuild64\ui\qt\qtui.vcxproj)

Which Wireshark source code are you trying to build, what exact Qt version and what MSVC version are you using?
Right now Wireshark 2.0.X (master-2.0 branch) and 2.1.X (master branch) are building fine with MSVC2013 and Qt 5.3.2, as seen here:
On my side I build both branches with MSVC2013 and Qt 5.5.0 without any issue.

Best regards,
