With truly portable application, you just put it somewhere and it

understand that I'd still have to correct the path in -P switch every

PORTABLE yet, but at least it's moving in right direction :)

Well, you'll probably never have the standard Wireshark distribution be portable "out of the box", as people *NOT* using it as a portable application would want it to store their preferences in their "profile directory" or whatever it's called.

What you might get is a *separate* build, or a *separate* package, that somehow forces Wireshark to run in a portable mode.
