Hi all,

My wireshark doesnt open few days later after installation. It's freezing on "loading configuration files %100" screen. My computer Win 8.1 updated.

I cant terminate the Dumpcap.exe. For kill the dumpcap process I have to restart computer. After restarting the computer I can uninstall/reinstall wireshark and Its working but few days later again same problem accours.

Do you have any idea about this problem?

Regards. Emre

The issue comes probably from WinPCAP, as already in numerous posts. Unfortunately there does not seem to be much activity on WinPCAP development side to fix this issue...
