Run the command Run the command
cmake "-DPacket_ROOT={path-to-sdk}" {path-to-tcpdump-source} cmake "-DPacket_ROOT={path-to-sdk}" -G {generator} {path-to-tcpdump-source}
where {path-to-sdk} is the path of the directory containing the Npcap or {path-to-sdk} is the path of the directory containing the Npcap or
WinPcap SDK and {path-to-tcpdump-source} is the pathname of the WinPcap SDK.
top-level source directory for tcpdump.
{generator} is the string "Visual Studio N YYYY", where "N" is the
version of Visual Studio and "YYYY" is the year number for that version;
if you are building a 64-bit version of tcpdump, YYYY must be followed
by a space and "Win64". For example, to build a 32-bit version of
tcpdump with Visual Studio 2017, "{generator}" would be "Visual Studio
15 2017" and to build a 64-bit version of tcpdump with Visual Studio
2017, "{generator}" would be "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64".
{path-to-tcpdump-source} is the pathname of the top-level source
directory for tcpdump.
