Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Problem with GeoIP

I'm having problem getting GeoIP to work and could use some help. I'm running WinXP SP3 and Wireshark v1.2.1.

When I start a capture and try and execute GeoIP:

Statistics | Endpoints | IPv4 | Map

I get a Pop-Up Window with the following title and text:

Move Items

Select the place where you want to move 'ipmap.html'.
Then click the Move button.

I then select a folder but nothing happens.

Here is my configuration. I've installed the following files on my workstation:

C:\Program Files\Wireshark\GeoIPGeoIP.dat               1,135KB        8/1/2009
C:\Program Files\Wireshark\GeoIPGeoIPASNum.dat    2,214KB        7/17/2009
C:\Program Files\Wireshark\GeoIPGeoLiteCity.dat       32,046KB      8/1/2009

Next I made the following changes to Wireshark

Edit | Preferences | Name Resolution | GeoIP database directories

C:\Program Files\Wireshark\GeoIP

Edit | Preferences | Protocols | IP

Enable GeoIP lookups

Any ideas?
