Wireshark Portable 1.2.1 Rev 29141 Start Error

September 10, 2009

Here’s an annoying runtime error I just ran into using Wireshark Portable.

WSStartupError

 

 

 

 

Looking at this Wireshark bug ID shows a possible solution:

1) copy WiresharkPortable\Other\PortableSource\WiresharkPortable.ini  to
WiresharkPortable\WiresharkPortable.ini
2) edit WiresharkPortable\WiresharkPortable.ini and change the line:

WinPcapInstaller=WinPcap_4_0_2.exe

to

WinPcapInstaller=WinPcap_4_1_beta5.exe

However, the INI file mentioned above already has the correct beta5.exe WinPcap line. However, just moving the INI file to the WiresharkPortable folder did the trick.
