The text of the message (which is all that's of interest in the screenshot) is:

    This application has asked the Runtime to terminate it in an
    unusual way.
    Please contact the application's support team for more information.

which means "somebody called abort()":

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/k089yyh0(v=vs.80).aspx

Unfortunately, "somebody called abort()" doesn't say much, so I'm not sure what
we can determine at this point.

If we can get Wireshark to pop up a console window, it (or, if a routine in a
library it's using is calling abort(), the library routine) might print out a
message with the error.  How are you launching Wireshark?  By double-clicking
the shortcut for it?  If so, the least complicated way of doing it might be to
tweak the shortcut to launch Wireshark with the arguments "-o
gui.console_open:ALWAYS".
