Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] plugin
Sorry Jaap,

The Wireshark 1.0.1 installer that I downloaded for win32 is where I
dropped the plugin. The Wireshark build that it was created from was
from http://www.wireshark.org/download/src/. I used the
wireshark-1.0.0.tar.gz. After building the code and getting the plugin,
I drop it in. I then run Wireshark from program files/wireshark. I get
the following error: see attachment. The dissector doesn't dissect any
packets. The expressions box doesn't turn green either. 

Thanks,
martin

Hi,

Please specify "doesn't work". Does it get loaded (see about wireshark,
plugin tabs), doesn't it get called for frames you expect, does it
crash, or something else? Is there a platform difference between the WS
version you have installed and the plugin build? Is the CRT compatible?

Stuff like that makes M$-Win development so exiting, and that's why I
stick to GNU/Linux, because it gives you just enough rope to hang
yourself (M.S.) ;).

Thanx,
Jaap
