I am using wireshark 1.10.x in Linux. If running the following command: tshark -r test.pcap -V >> test.txt The command passed.

But if I call the command in my software, the error is: tshark: /home/my software/bin/ no version information available (required by /usr/local/lib/ exists in both /lib/ and /home/my software/bin/, and they have the same version number.

Any possible reason for the failure? And how to let tshark call /lib/, not /home/my software/bin/

The error did not happen when using wirehshark 1.6.x.

Thank you.

Yes. The way you called tshark in your software/application. As you did not say anything about that, it's impossible to help you.
