Yes, that is all true. I didn't do anything with the .dll. I left
everything in my ged125 folder. I prepared the make files to make an
installer but didn't do it yet. Should I? I ran the .exe from the
wireshark directory and that gave me those errors as previous stated

So, you setup a build environment (Win32 I presume?). Then created a
ged125 under the plugins source directory and placed your dissector and
support files there. You made the modifications to the build environment
according to README.plugin and build Wireshark. If not please let us
Then what did you do with the DLL? Did you make an installer? Did you
install that version? Did you move it somewhere by hand?
Somehow it's finding two instances of the dissector and once the fist is
registered the second causes this report. (Or a name hash collision,
which would be very unfortunate).
