From: "Pat Saunders" <[email protected]>

            I am using Microsoft Visual 2008 : winXP

            I have added a small plug-in but when I start Wireshark.exe it crashes with a fault address in libwireshark.dll.

            I am 75% sure this is due to my plug-in (When I take my plug-in out it starts most of the time).

            My Question is how do I go about debugging the WireShark.exe to find out where the fault address crash is ??

(1)     – Are there any log files or debugging info .??

(2)     – Do I use the Visual 2008 debugger – if so, Do I need to compile in debug mode ??


I am not very familiar with Visual 2008 – so any tips would be appreciated
