That's the correct build command for Wireshark 3.0, but we'll need to see the full output from the command. Please redirect the output to a text file, post the file on a public share and then post a link to it back here. You can redirect using the following:

cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" ..\wireshark 2>&1 > cmakeout.txt

(I'll put this up here for future reference) Generate the build files
To use a different generator modify the -G parameter. cmake -G lists all the CMake supported generators, but only Visual Studio is supported for Wireshark builds.

C:\Development\wsbuild64>cmake -G
CMake Error: No generator specified for -G

Generators
* Visual Studio 16 2019        = Generates Visual Studio 2019 project files.
                                 Use -A option to specify architecture.
  Visual Studio 15 2017 [arch] = Generates Visual Studio 2017 project files.
                                 Optional [arch] can be "Win64" or "ARM".

You worked through the cookbook for building on Windows?
The syntax for your command isn't the same as section 2.2.12. Generate the build files

Yes. Follow all the steps in that cookbook, as described.

That's the correct CMake invocation for Wireshark 3.0 which was built with VS2017.
