Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] startup error with my dissector

A general way to get more information about what's wrong is to start tshark up from a comand line. When doing this (on Windows) the same error message as with Wireshark appears on the console, but a more detailed one appears in a pop-up window. In this case I think it will name the module in question, but in others it can be more specific and name a function.

Regards, Andy.

After I copy a privately built dissector (dll) in the plugin directory of the wireshark, I get following error on wireshark.exe startup:
Couldn't load module C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\0.99.6\ppci.dll: The specified module could not be found.
Here ppci is my own dissector built on 0.99.6 code version. The wireshark version I am using is also the same.
Can anybody help me out ?
