Terminate wireshark in an unusual way.


Hi There,

I've installed wireshark on our server and its running well for sometime. and then its giving an error 'Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library'. This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. When I click OK on the dialogue box then it shows Wireshark.ese-Application error. Then wireshark get closed. Before I've installed version Wireshark-win64-1.10.1 and then upgraded to Wireshark-win64-1.10.2.However getting same issue.

Would you please help me to resolve this.

Thanks, Minal

This is usually a sign that Wireshark has run out of memory. See the Wiki page on this known problem here. @Jasper also has a blog entry about it here.
