You can build Wireshark with Visual Studio (2017 or 2019) by following the step-by-step instructions in the Wireshark Developers Guide.

I always recommend using a VM to build as you can easily manage what's installed to reduce any possible conflicts with other software.

The instructions are there for a reason as it's been found that's the best way to get started when building a complicated project such as Wireshark. Once you have managed that then you can try other non-documented methods on your own, e.g. by using the VS support for CMake.
