I installed the latest version of wireshark on my PC running windows 7 x64. However when trying to launch it by clicking the .exe nothing happens. I tried running in with admin rights and win7 compatibility mode but nothing happens either. I tried looking around in task manager but no processes appear that are Wireshark related. Applications such as Tshark and rawshark close the instant they start up. I have no idea what is causing this. Any help would be appreciated.

After uninstalling and doing a clean installation of Wireshark x32 the same thing happens. Nothing starts.
