Did the download of the bundle succeed? If not you may have to down load it manually. If you are behind I proxy you may have to fix the proxy settings.

i.e. Do you have the file gtk+-bundle_2 in C:\Development\Wireshark\Wireshark-win32-libs?

(19 Nov '14, 01:18) grahamb ♦

@grahamb: ya I have the gtk+-bundle_2 in C:\Development\Wireshark\Wireshark-win32-libs folder but still its showing the error in unpacking..

@anders: I tried to do it the way you suggested, but it gets stuck in this step.

Ok, back to the beginning, what do you get for nmake -f Makefile.nmake verify_tools?

This is what I get for verify_tools

This may be a problem

unzip: /cygdrive/c/oraclexe/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/server/bin/unzip

I think it should be unzip from the cygwin package

Haven't we been here before?

unzip: /cygdrive/c/oraclexe/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/server/bin/unzip

You have to remove that (broken) Oracle version of unzip from your path.

I fixed the unzip error, but I am not seeing flex:/usr/bin/flex in verify_tools. How to fix that?

(20 Nov '14, 08:41) aman

I fixed that out but while executing all command I get NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make '../../tools/make-dissector-reg'

what is this due to?

(21 Nov '14, 10:33) aman

You'll need to add some more context of the output preceding this error.

That's the output after, we need whatever came immediately before.

You're building a plugin that has an older makefile and is still referring to the shell based version of make-dissector-reg. That's gone and only the Python version is supported now.

Edit your makefile.nmake, find the line that calls make-dissector-reg and add .py to the end of the filename. Look at the makefile.nmake for the mate plugin if you get stuck.

I got this problem because of the Qt path. I followed the instructions here - and one step includes setting the Qt path as:

set QT5_BASE_DIR=C:\Qt\Qt5.3.0\5.3\msvc2013

However, the correct setting for Qt in my case was:

set QT5_BASE_DIR=C:\Qt\Qt5.3.2\5.3\msvc2013_opengl

Changing the set corrected the problem for me.

You will likely have to adjust the paths as per the preceding statement in the developers guide:

Set the following environment variables, using paths and values suitable for your installation:

regardless, this isn't really an answer to the somewhat old question, but a separate build environment config issue

Hi Graham,

Yes don't get me wrong - I'm not complaining about the setup guide, I'm just recording the reason why I got the error in the subject line.

Best regards...Paul

Plus I made the same error as reported elsewhere and downloaded the 32 bit version of Qt on my 64 bit machine. So the correct QT5_BASE_DIR set is:

set QT5_BASE_DIR=C:\Qt\Qt5.5.1\5.5\msvc2013_64

More easily done than you think because if you click on the Download Now button on the Qt website, it downloads the 32 bit version.
