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
> I have developed a wrieshark plugin and now I need to make it
available for others to use the plugin.
> If I blindly share the plugin.dll file, it is not possible for
others to use the plugin straight forward by putting that DLL file in
the destination PC\program files\wireshark\plugins\. 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.
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
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.
