Wireshark 3.5 NSIS Build Error

asked 2021-04-19 11:44:48 +0000

I'm trying to build a NSIS installer for Wireshark 3.5 and encounter build errors related to generating documentation. I have the correct documentation toolchain installed. The core core Wireshark build and my two plugins work fine. I just cannot make the installer. I'm building on Windows 10 x64. Is there a way to build an installer without the documentation or is this a JRE issue that must be solved?

Win32/64: Step-by-Step Guide
Yes, unless you modify the build and installer configs, documentation is required to build the installer.

First time around building my dev environment (win10 x64), the Java installer picked 32-bit packages.
Similar messages to what you are seeing. Fixed by reinstalling 64-bit Java.

My default Java install was x32 and I made a side-by-side x64 local install and set JAVA_HOME to it in the Wireshark build. Problem solved - thanks very much.
