What do you mean by, "i replaced make file with other makefile"? Which makefile(s) are you referring to? It sounds like you might have made some modifications to one or more files, with one makefile in particular being one you tried to revert back to the original, but without luck.

Assuming that's the case, then I would suggest that you download Wireshark sources again and make sure you're able to run "nmake -f makefile.nmake verify_tools " with the stock Wireshark sources first before you try modifying anything. Once you confirm that you can do that, then make modifications as needed. Better still might be to have 2 complete source directories - one that is left untouched and one that you are working on. If you happen to break something in your working copy, you can run a diff against the pristine sources to help you determine what you might have done wrong.
