2012-10-10Add a format_size function similar to g_format_size that renders a sizeGerald Combs1-1/+2
value in a human-readable format. Use it in the welcome screen, status bar, and Win32 interface details. Note that in the welcome screen and status bar we've switched from customary binary prefixes to strict SI. svn path=/trunk/; revision=45453
2012-10-04For VS 2010 EE, when building 64-bit, indicate why you need the SDK (toGuy Harris1-9/+14

2012-10-04Clarify what the problem is with building PortableApps or U3 packagesGuy Harris1-2/+4
with Visual Studio Express Edition - the resulting package cannot be self-contained and will require that the Visual C++ Redistributables be installed on any machine into which you plug the portable Wireshark package, which kinda defeats the purpose of a portable package (plug it in and go). svn path=/trunk/; revision=45315
2012-10-04For each toolchain version, split the stuff about Microsoft.VC{n}.CRTGuy Harris1-49/+63
and vcredist_{processor}.exe into three paragraphs, and put the bit about vcredist_{64-bit processor}.exe into the paragraph about 64-bit targets. svn path=/trunk/; revision=45311
2012-10-04Note that we redistribute "using Visual C++ Redistributable Package" forGuy Harris1-26/+23
*all* 64-bit builds, regardless of whether you have Visual Studio Express Edition or not. You only need to download the redistributable package when you're using the Express Edition or are doing 64-bit builds. svn path=/trunk/; revision=45307
2012-10-04Reflect current reality as it exists in Makefile.nmake - even withGuy Harris1-23/+111
MSVC2008 and MSVC2010, when doing 32-bit builds, with the non-Express versions we "Install a particular Visual C++ assembly as a private assembly for the application", if for no other reason than to support "portable" versions of Wireshark, where the application is provided a a completely self-contained directory tree on a medium such as a flash drive, and where there is no installer to install anything on the target machine. For 64-bit builds, we currently don't support a "portable" version, so we "Use the Visual C++ Redistributable Package". Convert tabs to spaces. svn path=/trunk/; revision=45306

2012-10-04Oops, get rid of a cut-and-pasteo extra <para> tag.Guy Harris1-1/+0
svn path=/trunk/; revision=45303
2012-10-04For VS 2005, also mention the IA-64 vcredist the first time we mentionGuy Harris1-17/+33
the versions of vcredist, just in case anybody is building for Itanium. The second time we mention them, mention all three, not just the 32-bit x86 version. Rewrite the sentence for that a bit - it's not as if MSVC uses particular deployment methods, those were chosen by the Wireshark development team. For VS 2008, note that Microsoft mentions all three redistribution mechanisms, and link to the "Choosing a Deployment Method" page for VS 2008 (which looks as if Microsoft didn't do a good job of editing it after copying-and-pasting the 2005 version, or didn't set up ASP or whatever it is that supplies VS-specific versions of the pages correctly). For VS 2010, note that Microsoft mentions all three redistribution mechanisms, link to the "Choosing a Deployment Method" page for VS 2010, and note that it recommends the method we chose and gives it as as the first method. svn path=/trunk/; revision=45302
2012-10-04For each of the 3 ways to redistribute Visual C++ libraries, give themGuy Harris1-15/+21
tags from the "Redistributing Visual C++ libraries" section of the MSDN "Choosing a Deployment Method" page, and put them in the same order as the three methods mentioned on that page (which means swapping the second and third ways in the list, so "method 2" becomes "method 3" and "method 3" becomes "method 2". svn path=/trunk/; revision=45301
2012-10-03Oops, match opening and closing tags.Guy Harris1-1/+1
svn path=/trunk/; revision=45279
2012-10-03Get rid of the "Install MSVC the usual way" paragraph - the previousGuy Harris1-5/+2
paragraphs give more details on how to install, and the stuff about vcvars32.bat is given later, in more detail. While we're at it, fix another reference to vcvars32 to also refer to vcvarsall. svn path=/trunk/; revision=45278
2012-10-03Move the stuff about setting environment variables to the "setting upGuy Harris1-16/+17

the "32-bit vs. 64-bit build machine" vs. "32-bit vs. 64-bit target" matrix. Use the correct paths ("Visual Studio 10.0", not "Visual Studio 10" - an MSDN page uses the latter, but my virtual machine shows the former; add "(x86)" to "Program Files" on 64-bit machines, as the batch files are installed in 32-bitland). svn path=/trunk/; revision=45276

Remove "/en-us" from links; presumably it'll go to the appropriate country and language for you (or will default to the country and primary language of Redmond, Washington :-)). svn path=/trunk/; revision=43034
2012-06-03Update some links (the "[Ff]amily[Ii]d=" links just redirected to theGuy Harris1-17/+45
"id=" links when I last tried them). There are apparently both x86 and x86 versions of the VC++ 2005 distributables and, at least for the non-SP1 versions, there's also an IA64 version. List them. If the URLs have the country and language in them, the displaylang= item doesn't seem to work (tried with both "displaylang=en" and "displaylang=de" with both "en-us" and "de-de"). Remove it.

2012-06-03Say "For {compiler}, you need" rather than "For {compiler}, use" - whenGuy Harris1-27/+27
discussing VC++ 2010, at least, you may need *both* of them if you'll be doing both 32-bit and 64-bit builds; hopefully this makes it sound a bit less like a choice of one or the other but not both. Get rid of reference to 32-bit builds with MSVC++ 2008 (did it do 64-bit builds? I didn't see any reference to 64-bit redistributables for it on the pages for the other redistributables). svn path=/trunk/; revision=43014
