Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] V0.99.5 & Coloring Rules

From: "Keith French" <keithfrench@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

After renaming the color filters file, Wireshark then used the default colors. If I disabled colors from the view menu, delete the default ones in the color filters, then reimport mine & re-enable colors, it is still the same. As far as I know there are no special (international) characters in my personal profile folder.

I have attached a zip containing the color filters, preferences dfilters cfilters and the screenshot you requested. Plus a file called "My original color filter file" which is the one that works fine with 0.99.4.

Thanks for your help,

Sounds like your personal filters are just not used/found now - for
whatever reasons.

Do you have some special (international) characters in your personal
profile folder c:\documents and settings\...?

Could you try the following:

- "disable" the global colorfilters file (e.g. c:\Program
Files\colorfilters), e.g. rename it to something like colorfilters.old.
After restarting Wireshark I guess you won't have any colors left.
- send us a screenshot of your folders info, from Help/About
Wireshark/Folders. Maybe there's something strange here.
- send us your personal colorfilters file. So we can try it for ourself.
