If you want to install an application in OSX, you only have to drag

The problem is that there is a folder in the .dmg installation package
If you drag this folder into your "applications"-folder you are

You're not supposed to do that. The Read me first file says:
1. Drag the Wireshark icon onto to the Applications alias. 2. Open the Utilities folder. 3. Drag the contents of the Command Line folder to $HOME/bin, /usr/ local/bin, /opt/wireshark/bin or any other location that makes sense (preferably one that's in your PATH). 4. You will probably need to adjust the permissions of /dev/bpf* in order to capture. You can do this by hand or by dragging the ChmodBPF folder onto the StartupItems alias.
Oh boy, than it was absolutely my fault ;) Next time i will read the readme file first!
However, perhaps we should rename the Utilities folder to some other name.
think so too!
Now i have to do a new OSX Install to get my "Utilities" folder
There isn't a copy of the old Utilities folder in the Trash?
nope, because it´s overwritten. But i´ve copied the folder from an friend´s macbook. Now everything works fine.
