Thanks, I thought that answer may come up. Only issue with that is that the user will have to uninstall the version they have before installing my version :(
 
A follow up question on this... can two different Wireshark installations exist on the same system? If so, how can I differentiate my version from a stock install? That is, Windows must see my version (such as in Add/Remove Programs) as a completely different and independent app. I'm assuming the VERSION_EXTRA thing is not enough.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Hi,

This sounds all overly complicated. You could deduce which
executable/DLL is affected by you changes by unraveling the build
process, but it's much easier to build you own full installer.

Thanx,
Jaap
