Found something interesting - VC redist installer was failing to install in 
Win2000 with an error which related to not having the Windows Installer 3.0 
(or 3.1) package installed, which is a requirement for the vc runtime 

I'll run up a quick test on a machine that's generating the error and 
include the installer in the wireshark installer to see if that fixes it.

believe the vcredist_x86.exe is failing with something like a 1723 error 
where a required dll is missing.

This is what I get when I try and run my wireshark build on Windows 2000. It 
works fine on Windows XP and 2003. My build is based off the 0.99.6 release 
source. One thing I noticed was that when trying to install the Visual C++ 
2005 Redistributable (during the Wireshark install), it gave a "Error 1723. 
There is a problem with this Windows Installer package...". Is there any 
compatibility issues with this and Windows 2000?

Someone had this problem before, but it seems no solution was found:

[Wireshark-dev] Error: wireshark.exe is not a valied Win32 application

Also, the Windows 2000 "problems to avoid" in
I don't understand.

I'm using Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition, Platform SDK Server 2003 R2, and 
C-Runtime redistributable for Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition 
(vcredist_x86.exe) for the installer.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
