I installed 0.99.5 on Win NT. On running wireshark, I get the message:

the procedure entry point PrintDlgExW could not be located in the

The release notes mention that 95, 98, and ME are no longer supported.
Should NT be on that list also? 0.99.4 works for me on NT.

Yep, PrintDlgEx is W2K or later.  Looks like it's time to say goodbye to
 NT support for Wireshark.  I would think it likely that the function is
only used in the GTK2 branch.  Have you tried the GTK1 version?

Yes, it's time to drop support for NT 4.0

Interestingly Bugzilla 1393 ( also notes that NT4 is no longer working,
but mentions lack of SHGetSpecialFolderPath()!

It seems that none of the WS developers is actually working on or for NT4 - Microsoft has dropped support for NT4 at the end of 2005.

You may just keep using WS 0.99.4 ...
