The msbuild fails with the following error:

Have you previously attempted to build an x64 version in the same build directory? You can't mix versions in the same build directory.

I would delete the build directory, create a new one, re-run the CMake generation step and build again.

Also note that Wireshark is currently built using QT 5.12.5, but I don't think using 5.13.1 is responsible for this issue.

Previously I had built a 64 bit version. Cleaned out the directories and started over. Successful 32 bit version of Wireshark.

Out of interest why are you building and using a 32 bit version?

I'm interested to see if we should continue building the 32 bit version.

Added a plugin to Wireshark. Not everyone has a 64 bit machine. Some clients are using windows 7.

Sure, but the dwindling pool of 32 bit users will at some point reduce enough to make the effort to maintain a 32 bit version pointless. Not sure when though.
