I am using an older version of Wireshark (V1.2.9) so please tell me if this issue has been reported and or fixed:

When I export captured Wireshark data, the info field data in the exported file does not match the info field data that is displayed in the screen. I am exporting all packets to a CSV file but certain packets are displayed with errors on the Wireshark display window but these errors are listed as 0 errors in the actual exported file... I have an image of this but no way to attach it to this question...

Why doesn't the info in the info field match and how do I get the info field data displayed in the file to match the info field info displayed on the Wireshark screen?


I just tried to download newer versions of Wireshark (v1.48, 1.60 & 1.61) but each of these gives and errors when loading certain files and the end result is an error message that states items not found in the wiretap_3.0.dll

What gives?

I don't know the answer to your original question.

However: For the newer Wireshark versions: "... states items not found in the wiretap_3.0.dll" doesn't sound right. I suggest first posting on the [email protected] mailing list showing the "errors when loading certain files" and the error message about "items not found in wiretaop_3.0.dll" so we can see what's going on.


Once we get that problem handled we can then address your initial issue.

Also: Bug reports (which allow attachments) can be made at
