Win2008 fails with .dll error


I have recently installed Wireshark on a Windows 2008 SP2 server. The NICs are Broadcom NetExtreme II with the latest drivers. The error in the Windows application error log is:

Faulting application wireshark.exe, version, time stamp 0x4fe369bd, faulting module libglib-2.0-0.dll, version, time stamp 0x4faa7bfc, exception code 0x40000015, fault offset 0x000000000004fd12, process id 0x1110, application start time 0x01cd52939171d90c.

Any help would be appreciated

I did go there and try that work around. It didn't help me. I wish it had.

I have it set not to show the output, create new files every 2 minutes, ring buffer set to 2.

I am working around the GUI issues by running dumpcap.
