I am new to Wireshark development ecosystem. Was able to build the executable using the instructions in the page below:

However, when trying to build the install package using the commands below, I am getting 'unknown target' error for both the commands.

  • ninja wireshark_nsis_prep
  • ninja wireshark_nsis

Could it be because of any missing package? Much appreciate any help or pointers.

Purely for my own interest, what's the reason for choosing an MSYS2 build?

While the original issue still persists, was able to run the command below directly from the MSYS2 URCT64 prompt and get the installer built:

cpack --config ./CPackConfig.cmake
