No problem.  Although many applications use libpcap (Unix) and presumably
WinPcap (Windows) for reading capture files, we don't.  Wireshark can read and
write all of the supported capture files on its own (we call that portion of
Wireshark "wiretap").  We only use WinPcap / libpcap for capturing live traffic
off the network.
