I've a problem to upgrade Wireshark from v1.10.0 to v1.10.7 on a Windows 2008 server. When I run I the installer it complains there are still Wireshark associated programs open. I've checked the op en windows processes but could not find any process related to Wireshark. What else could be the problem? Rebooting the server is a possible alternative but only possible outside business hours...

There have been observations of a dumpcap.exe process running stopping updates.

Indeed I've killed 3 dumpcap.exe processes and retried the install. Now it starts but I got several errors where I answered 'ignore'. But 1.10.7 runs now after install. I hope it will keep running now...
