Seeing the following error when starting Wireshark: Field 'Timestamp' (profishark.ts) is an FT_FLOAT but is being displayed as ABSOLUTE_TIME_LOCAL instead of BASE_NONE

Wireshark then fails to start.

Looks like your are having a plugin compiled for an older version of Wireshark that was not updated / recompiled for 2.2 version. You should ask ProfiShark support for an updated dll.

Or ask them to contribute the plugin to the Wireshark project as source (or ask them for the source and then contribute that source to us yourself).
