Keep CMake from finding Cygwin's Python.
Try to find Python and set PYTHON_EXECUTABLE on Windows via the registry prior to calling FindPythonInterp. This works around a bug in CMake that prefers Cygwin's Python, which is a symlink, which by default is a text file that contains a Cygwin-specific cookie, which is therefore useless outside of Cygwin. This is avoids the need to pass -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=... to CMake.

1c) set QT5_BASE_DIR=C:\Qt\5.4.1\5.4\msvc2013_opengl (must match the Qt component path
on your system)
1d) If you want to use Visual Studio to build rather than msbuild from the command line,
- make sure that the paths to Python and Cygwin are available to GUI applications.
- The Python path MUST come first.
+ make sure that the path to Cygwin is available to GUI applications.
2) mkdir c:\wireshark\build or as appropriate for you.
You will need one build directory for each bitness (win32, win64) you wish to build.
3) cd into the directory from 2) above.
4) Run the following to generate the build files:
- cmake -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/path/to/python -DENABLE_CHM_GUIDES=on xxx path\to\sources
- where /path/to/python is the path to your Windows python executable, e.g. C:/Python27/python
- and path\to\sources is the absolute or relative path to the wireshark source tree
+ cmake -DENABLE_CHM_GUIDES=on xxx path\to\sources
