I am trying to add a custom extension to couple of LTE messages so I can see them in wireshark.
Since I will be using wireshark exclusively in windows, I figured doing a native win64 build will be the best way to proceed.
Accordingly, I followed the build environment setup process a t
Confirmed the setup by building (using the following commands), and tested wireshark come up (with the appended version string) and work as normal.
> cmake -DENABLE_CHM_GUIDES=on -G "Visual Studio 12 2013 Win64" ..\wireshark
> msbuild /m /p:Configuration=RelWithDebInfo Wireshark.sln

Then, I modified the file: C:\Development\wireshark\asn1\lte-rrc\EUTRA-RRC-Definitions.asn
and added the asn structures that will add the required extensions.

Now, I am stuck on the building process. The commands above don't seem to be bothered about re-compiling the EUTRA-RRC-Definitions.asn file.

Yes ASN.1 based dissectors are not automatically regenerated.

Can someone please point me to the right way to build wireshark with the changes?

cd asn1\lte-rrc
msbuild /m /p:Configuration=RelWithDebInfo generate_dissector-lte-rrc.vcxproj
cd ..\..
msbuild /m /p:Configuration=RelWithDebInfo Wireshark.sln


This info deserves a spot in the Developers Guide.
