I want to know what changes are required to build wireshark on windows 7 64-bit. Is there any step by step guide other than the one given in the developer's guide as it is for 32 bit system? Which visual C++ would be required, 2008 or 2010? A step by step guide would be much preferable. Thanks

Although I haven't built a 64 bit version, as long as you have the 64 bit compilers installed everything should be straightforward. Ensure your command prompt is set up for building 64 bit applications and edit config.nmake to adjust the variable
The buildbot and Wireshark releases use 2008.

You might want to read some of the answers to the question entitled, Build was working on WindowsXP, but now it fails to build in Win7 x64.
