I was able to compile amin as well as foo dissector, but the dissector that I had written is not getting compiled as well as (amin,foo also not working). Error when doing nmake all is:

Making plugin.c (using python)
Updating plugin.c
NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make '..\..\epan\libwireshark.lib'stop.

Can anybody help promptly?

You should probably start by reading (or possibly re-reading) README.plugins very carefully.

And don't forget about README.developer, as well as the Wireshark developer's guide.
