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.

What version of Visual Studio did you use to compile your plugin?  If different from the one used for Wireshark releases, then your dll might be linked to a different version of the c-runtime library and cause the symptoms you see.

Try building the installer on your machine (you'll need NSIS as per the developers guide) using 'nmake -f Makefile.nmake packaging' and letting others install that.  This will ensure all the code is linked against the same c-runtime library.
