I wrote a Wireshark Plugin on Wireshark 1.7.1 and compiled WS to generate a DLL. Now when I take this DLL and put this in Wireshark 1.8.1 I get an error saying msvcr90.dll is missing. In my Wireshark 1.8.1 installation, I checked and found that I have msvcr100.dll instead of msvcr90.dll.

Please help me fix this..!!

Wireshark 1.8.x is built with Visual Studio 2010. You need to recompile your plugin with that version to make it work with Wireshark 1.8.x.

Also note that, in general, you cannot take a plugin compiled for one major.minor version (e.g., 1.7) and use it in a different major.minor version (e.g., 1.8). We do, however, try to maintain binary compatibility within a major.minor version (e.g., something compiled for 1.8.0 should work with 1.8.1).
