I recently just got a custom plugin working on my Windows build of Wireshark by adding it as a custom extension. However, I now want to be able to give the installer to other people so they can use this version of Wireshark. Is this possible with a custom extension, or does it have to be a permanent addition?
In the README.plugins file, it says "The custom extension is easy to configure, but won't be used for inclusion in the distribution." This makes me think I can't use it for giving it to others. But, in the 3.1 section it talks about how to "add the plugin to your own Windows installer". What does it mean, "your own" installer? Can I not send this installer to other people?
Is there any way for me to give this version of Wireshark to other people without going in and making it a permanent addition?
