I know that to get Wireshark working on Windows 8, you set the installer to Windows 7 Compatibility mode (see this Question). My questions is this: Is this workaround going to be the only way to install Wireshark or is there going to be a native version of Wireshark for Windows 8?

The program work fine so far in windows 8 but to install winpcap I had to change the compatibility of the installer to windows 7.

What do you mean by "Native Version"? If you mean Metro, I think that's extremely unlikely due to the restrictions on Metro app capabilities.
If you mean a "classic desktop" app that just installs on Win 8 without having to change any installer settings, then that's much more likely. As usual, it depends on either one of the core developers finding time to do that, or someone stepping up to the plate and contributing patches.

Normal applications may work without any change. However, WinPCap is not a normal application. It works on driver level and therefore is restricted to the new driver rules on Win8.

.... after downloading, 1. right click on WinPcap_4_1_2.exe 2. select "troubleshoot compatibility" 3. select "try recommended options" ......... to install the driver...
