Did you remove any copies of the Visual C++ Runtime recently? The 64-bit version of Wireshark 1.8 depends on the 2010 SP1 CRT and 1.6 depends on the 2008 CRT. If this is the case uninstalling and reinstalling Wireshark should fix the problem.

When I looked in the System32 directory, I found a file named msvcr100_clr0400.dll. I simply made a copy of it and renamed it to msvcr100.dll. The file was placed in the system32 folder. Then it works.
