I have installed Wireshark for windows (ver 2.0.5) and I cannot seem to access the Capture Interfaces dialog box. It does not appear as an option in the Capture drop down menu as per the manual and the keyboard short cut command (CRTL-I) does not work either in bringing it up. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Try opening "Capture Options". The "Capture Interfaces" and "Capture Options" dialogs had quite a bit of overlap and were combined in the new UI.
