Re: [msvc] 'etype_vals' : unknown size

Good day sir,
I would like to update I just now used an SVN checkout of wireshark and
error C2133 will not anymore occur.
I was mistaken. I didn't expect that I needed the updates to other files
aside from etypes.h.
About my development situation is that my target is the latest release (of
which i assume, meant latest 'stable' release).
I will try to ask if the higher-ups will agree to using the development
version of wireshark.
But in the meantime, I will try to update my working copy with any other
files needed to be updated (i.e. ws_symbol_export.h was mentioned).
Thank you very much for the support.
Sincerely,
David

Unfortunately I am not building from a checkout (SVN/git), instead I am
using the wireshark source from here:

I retrieved the latest etypes.h though and replaced my copy.
However, the error will still occur:
C:\wireshark-1.10.1\epan/etypes.h(551) : error C2133: 'etype_vals' :
unknown size

Would building from a checkout matter? (I think it won't)

I think it will.

A number of changes to ws_symbol_export.h were made, after 1.10 was
released, to fix the use of "extern", especially with data declarations and
definitions; declarations of arrays without an explicit size *MUST* use
"extern", as MSVC gets upset otherwise, and definitions of data objects
that explicitly initialize them must *NOT* use "extern", as some compilers
get upset otherwise.

Those fixes will probably fix your problem.

Most Wireshark development should probably be done by checking out the
trunk from SVN.  The only development that should be done with a release
source tarball is:

        building plugins for that particular release;

        building modified versions of that particular release for use
in-house.

If you are doing one of those, we can see whether we can backport the
changes I mentioned above to the 1.10 branch so that they're in a future
1.10 release.
