A guess is that the dll you're trying to load "xerceslua.dll" isn't the correct bitness for the version of Wireshark you're using, e.g. you have Wireshark x64 and the dll is x86.

When it does load, you might also have issues with different versions of the MSVCRT (C run-time library) as supplied by the compiler used to build them. Unfortunately Windows processes and dynamically loaded modules, i.e. DLL's, must use the same version of CRT. You can check the CRT used by Wireshark from the Help -> About Wireshark dialog, but for Wireshark 1.12 it's VS2010 (or MSVCR100.dll to be precise).
