Hi Folks,

I had made a dissector plugin some time back with VS 2008 and Wireshark 1.7.1.

It used to run fine with version-1.7.1 but same plugin gives me "R6034 runtime error" with Wireshark 1.8.2 ,which happens to be latest stable release.

Now i found this thread below , wherein it is mentioned that VS version should be same for plugin and executable. Now i wanted to know which VS version was used to build 1.8.2 ?? And how can i make my plugin compatible with both release ?

This command will tell you:

wireshark -v

Look for "Built using Microsoft Visual C++ ....".

And how can i make my plugin compatible with both release ?

AFIAK it's not possible to make your plugin compatible with both releases.

You could write an installer, that determines the wireshark version and then installs the appropriate plugin, OR you distribute your plugin together with the wireshark version it needs.

Thanks for the reply sir!!

It shows -- "Built using Microsoft Visual C++ 10.0 build 40219"

I think this is the reason of my problem.
