imac wireshark installation gets hung up, cannot install


RE: iMac, Wireshark, install, hung

I am trying to install the Wireshark 1.12.0 intel 64 version. I read somewhere that an XQuartz might need to be installed, but this article referred to a lion, and not Mavericks. I've tried three times installing, even authorizing apps downloaded from anywhere, but it gets hung up at "Preparing for installation" going on unreasonable timing of 15 minutes when I finally force quit. I would like to know if anyone has had this issue, and how were you able to correct it?
