It's possible that future C++ language changes may force them to change
I have been working through building an installer package on and for
Win64 on Windows 10 using VS 2017 and NSIS 3.03, so I thought I'd send
this report from the bleeding edge.
Cylance vs. Cygwin
"BLODA" is the Cygwin acronym for "Big List Of Dodgy Apps" and
unfortunately, I have discovered another one, which is Cylance which is
anti-malware software (despite both starting with "cy" they have no
relationship). For background on that, see
I have been able to work around this by getting my IT folks to whitelist
the following cygwin executables:
That seems to have been sufficient (so far) to get Wireshark to compile
(for building Wireshark, it's probably not necessary to have xterm.exe
but I use xterm often and it annoyed me!). Although it's more of a
Cygwin than a Wireshark issue, I mention it here in case anyone
encounters this problem and does a search.
I used this command for CMake:
cmake -DENABLE_CHM_GUIDES=on -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" ..
I found that I had to explicitly specify the platform when using
msbuild. For example, to build a Release version on my machine:
msbuild /m /p:Configuration=Release /p:Platform=x64 Wireshark.sln
I don't yet know enough about msbuild or sln files to troubleshoot much
further, but that worked for me.
I haven't yet done thorough testing, but the installer, Wireshark and
Tshark all seem to be to working correctly.
Hope that helps.
