Hi Chris,

     I am trying to build wireshark image. I am facing the error "
[Wireshark-dev] LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _ett_nds". I found your
post in the wireshark mail archive posted in the year 2008. I thought you
might have figured the way out. It would be a lot of help if you could give
me your inputs on it.

I have followed the same steps as mentioned in the wireshark website:

Here is the log when i do a verify_tools.

C:\>cd wireshark

C:\wireshark>nmake -f Makefile.nmake verify_tools

        sed: /usr/bin/sed
        unzip: /usr/bin/unzip
        wget: /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/wget

and after the nmake all the errors log is as follows:

   Creating library libwireshark.lib and object libwireshark.exp
dissectors.lib(packet-ncp-sss.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external
symbol _ett_nds

NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio

I would be a great help if you can help me resolve this. Thanks a lot in
