Re: Problems building installer on Windows 8

Hi,

The problem appears to be with NSIS version 3.0a1, there are no problems
with version NSIS 2.46. The problem is also evident on earlier versions of
the wireshark source if NSIS 3.0a1 is used. I will try and confirm if this
is also the case on non-windows 8 builds. I have been building the 32 bit
version and that is where I saw the reported issue but on a quick test The
64 bit version completes the package build but the installer fails to
install on a 64 bit system if NSIS 3.0a1 is used.

regards

Hi,
No real clues...does if fail building for 64bit as well? Not sure how many
builds on Win 8. I have Win 7.

Yes,
I have set WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM=win32 And run .. \"vcvarsall.bat x86
And generally followed instructions on:
http://www.wireshark.org/docs/wsdg_html_chunked/ChSetupWin32.html

nmake -f Makefile.nmake all
builds without error
Everything builds fine up to the build of the installer:
nmake -f Makefile.nmake packaging
which then fails with

Internal Compiler Error: Installers shell constants are different than
uninstallers

Fatal error U1077:  makensis.exe

Hi,

 

I have downloaded the latest code for wireshark to build on a Windows 8 (64
bit) machine.

I am building an x86 version and  can build all stages up to 

nmake -f Makefile.nmake packaging

At this point it fails with an error:

Internal Compiler Error: Installers shell constants are different than
uninstallers

Fatal error U1077:  makensis.exe

 

Any ideas why this step is failing?
