I have successfully build wireshark 2.2.1 in the same machine with same development Environment. Everything was perfect. Recently I wanted to buuild wireshark 2.2.4 and was unsuccesfull and ist showing These Errors. I have tried with 2.2.2 source code too. But These same Errors appear again! What could be the case? Thanks

I have filnally got somewhere with the issue - This is because of the Company's Firewall. But Dont worry, it dosent bother at all .i have successfully compiled a plugin while These 4 Errors were there. The plugin functions perfectly. So, just avoid These Errors if you are having them.

The files aren't required to build a plugin, only to create documentation for a full installer.

It's likely that there is an error in a file that's not getting rebuilt as there's no changes to the source that generates that file.

You can try to force a rebuild by adding a "/t:Rebuild" to the end of your msbuild command, or take the brute force approach of deleting your build directory (wsbuild32), creating a new one and running the cmake and msbuild steps again.

Looking in more depth at the error messages the path seems a little odd, C:/Temp/_temp/htmlhelp.xsl, this seems to be one directory above your source tree.

I have multiple htmlhelp.xsl files in my Cygwin install, but none of them outside there. What's your Cygwin install path, and what else is in C:\Temp\_temp
