Hi, I am facing one error while installing. I am using Visual Studio Express 2008 and getting one error in setup. When i see config.nmake, there is one comment.


you need to download the redistributable package vcredist_x86.exe from Microsoft first,

and copy it to the lib folder!!!

I have downloaded vcredist.x86.exe but where should it be copied??

Thanks, Dhanashree

As suggested in the error message, you need to copy vcredist_x86.exe to the libs folder. This folder is created at the same level as your Wireshark source directory. So, if your Wireshark sources are in C:\\wireshark-1.4.4 then the libs folder will be C:\\wireshark-win32-libs-1.4.
