In wireshark1.8.3.XP. the soft can't remember the path which have just used.
so the way to load a *.pcap are: 1,menu->file->open. 2,open button.(in the main interface)
but I used to open a *.pcap through the remembered path direct (in the main interface).
could you fix this .
in version wireshark1.6.4, there is no this problem.

I just tried it in 1.8.4 (on Windows XP) and it worked fine: to open a file I went to the directory where I keep many capture files and opened a file. I closed the file then did File->Open again; the Open File dialog was already in the last directory I used.
There is a preference which controls this behavior: in the Preferences screen in the "User Interface" tab there's a choice between "remember last directory" and "always start in"; maybe your preference is set to the latter?
