How to do an out of tree build using Visual C++ 2013:

-2) Install cmake
-2a) Build the zlib library, e.g.
- cd %WIRESHARK_BASE_DIR%\wireshark-%WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM%-libs\zlib125
- cmake -G "NMake Makefiles" . # msbuild will not do because of configuration path
- cmake --build .
-3) mkdir c:\wireshark\build
-4) cd c:\wireshark\build
-5) Run one of the following to create the build environment:
- cmake -G "NMake Makefiles" path\to\sources (i.e. in case your sources are located at c:\wireshark\trunk, use "..\trunk")
- cmake path\to\sources (this will build for the latest Visual Studio version found)
- cmake -G "Visual Studio 12" ("12" builds for VS2103. Use "11" for VS2012 or "10" for VS2010.)
- cmake -G "Visual Studio 12 Win64" (Win32 is the default)
-6) Run one of the following to build Wireshark:
- nmake /X- VERBOSE=1 (or cmake --build . -- VERBOSE=1 )
