Under XP I have built wireshark.exe from release 0.99.4

When I try to run the programme I get a popup titled “wireshark.exe – Unable to Locate Component” with the message
“This application has failed to start because wiretap-0.3.dll was not 
found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.”
I can see copies of wiretap-0.3.dll in three directories;

wiretap

wireshark-gtk1

wireshark-gtk2

These appear to have been created by the build, they are all the same size, and all have the same modification date/time so I am presuming they are identical.
How does wireshark locate the dlls?

Should the build be registering the dlls?

Any ideas how to fix this?

You need to run wireshark from the wireshark-gtk2 dir, it contains the complete environment (dlls and such).
