I have recently built a plugin dissector successfully in Linux. Now, I'm trying to compile and build the same plugin in Win environment. I have managed to setup my code environment and msbuild was executed successfully (without my plugin)
However, once I add my dissector to my project and try to build again, I get the following error:
I’ve gone through the procedure in README.plugins step by step. I’m using the ‘custom extension’ option. What am I missing here?

I was able to overcome this issue, by adding in the make-dissector-reg.py, in the open(file) function an extra argument for the encoding so that the script doesn't use the system's default encoding. Please consider this as a dirty solution
