I have downloaded the new 1.7 for 64 bit machines and when running the app it showed 1.4.6 32 bit was there instead. I loaded the 1.6.1 / 64bit stable and it took fine. Any ideas? My OS = W7Pro

There hasn't been an official 1.7 unstable release made yet, only the automated installers, so presumably you downloaded it from If so, which specific SVN version was it?

svn 's = 38195 & 38338

just downloaded SVN 38382 and that took! I looked at the other 2 again and they still go in as listed above. Very Strange ..... Eric

Hmm??? Well, they are unstable releases after all :)

Are both versions (32bit and 64bit) installed and are you perhaps using a shortcut to the 32bit version (C:\Program Files (x86)\Wireshark)?

No. This s a new PC - no previous Wireshark versions installaed at all. Not sure what to make of it either way ...

Let's assume there was a glitch in the automated build system for the 64-bit versions...
