Is there a way to create a Wireshark/Tshark profile that is shared by all the users of the machine under windows? It seems that profiles are saved by default in %APPDATA% which is unique to each user.

You should be able to achieve what you ask if you install the portable version of Wireshark in a directory every user has access to. I haven't tried it myself but I think it should work just fine.
