You need to run wireshark with elevated privileges. Please try starting wireshark by right-clicking on the wireshark link and choosing "run as administrator". This is a side effect of user account control (UAC) introduced in Vista. Even if you are logged in as an administrator, you do not have full privileges, you need to "elevate" your credentials to have full privileges needed to run wireshark (or better, to use winpcap which is part of wireshark).
Have a nice day

Subject: [Wireshark-users] Does Wireshark work on Windows Vista Business?

When I start Wireshark 0.99.5 on Windows Vista Business the program cannot see any interfaces at all. I have both an ethernet and a wireless adapter, but the "Interface" drop-down box in "Capture Options" is totally empty.
Hope someone can help me.
