Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Reason for dll to stop working

Date: Fri, 29 Feb 2008 10:32:41 -0600
I experienced a similar problem when corporate pushed Wireshark 0.99.7.  All I needed to do was update my Wireshark build environment for 0.99.7 (including the tool set), then rebuild my DLL and on MS Windows XP, copy the DLL(s) to the C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\0.99.7 directory.

Subject: [Wireshark-dev] Reason for dll to stop working

I have a dll that worked till version Wireshark0.99.6a but stopped working after Wireshark0.99.7.
suspected that differences mentioned in '5. Update "old style" plugin' of README.plugins in the 'doc' folder could be the reason for breaking the compatibility between Wireshark0.99.6a & Wireshark0.99.7.
But since there is no difference, that is not a probable cause.
What could be the probable cause. Which all paths can I explore?
Any suggestions?

thanks & regards,
