I am using Version 1.12.6 (v1.12.6-0-gee1fce6 from master-1.12) in 32 bit windows. I am decoding a diameter trace.

In my dictionary file, I have (just mentioning relevant parts):

...other entitities ]>
<vendor vendor-id="Ericsson"  code="193" name="Ericsson"/>


Then in the same folder I have Ericsson.xml. It seems when I decode it is not reading anything outside of dictionary.xml. For example:

When I add this in dictionary.xml it is read and decoded:

<avp name="Service-Provider-Id" code="1081" mandatory="must" vendor-bit="must" vendor-id="Ericsson" may-encrypt="no" protected="mustnot">
  <type type-name="UTF8String"/>

But when I have this AVP definition is in Ericsson.xml, wireshark doesnt decode it. it says "if you know this add this in dictionary.xml"

Just wondering what else I can do.

regards H

Do you have your own version of Ericsson.xml or,adding to the existing one? There may have been changes in the format.
