You don't indicate your build environment, but as msvcr80.dll is mentioned I
assume that you're using VS2005 in some form.

If this is the case, I think the problem is likely to be adns_dll.dll.  The
version that is downloaded is built with VC6, and doesn't play well with
VS2005 (VC8).  Open the adns project (adns_win32.dsw) in VS2005, convert it to
the VS2005 project format and rebuild it.  Link wireshark again and you should
be good to go.
