In my build environment I'm compiling Wireshark master branch with Qt 5.4.1 on Windows without any issue. Then the way to "configure" depends on your platform and build environment. For Windows, you need to set a QT5_BASE_DIR environment variable with the Qt 5.4.1 installation path.

As detailed in the Wireshark Developers Guide, sect. 2.2.9

For OS's other than Windows, it depends on what configure mechanism you use, either autotools or CMake.

I also want to setup this build environment in windows. I just want to ask that before running .pro file in qt is there any prerequisites that we have to install some tools or some files additionally?

Why are you running the .pro file?

The supported methods to build Wireshark, including the prequisites and setup, are detailed in the Developers Guide.
