A plugin is only guaranteed to work if it is compiled against the same version of Wireshark as the one the user has.
e.g if you put the plugin in WS 1.2.6 you must have used the 1.2.6 version when you compiled the plugin using MSVC9.

No. It works fine if I run it from Wireshark-gtk2/Wireshark.exe. If I download wireshark setup from wireshark.org , and after installing it , if I place my .dll file into C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins I am facing this problem. Please help me out in this.

After  placing  the .dll file into plugins folder, if I click on the packets belonging to other protocol say HTTP,UDP  it works fine. if I click on the packets of my protocol , then application crashes.

Sounds like a bug in your plugin.  You might need to run Wireshark inside a debugger to find where the bug is.
