I need to decode snmp OIDs in Wireshark, but when I Enable it under Name resolution I receive this error message:

Stopped processing module SNMPv2-SMI due to error(s) to prevent potential crash in libsmi. Module's conformance level: 1. See details at: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=560325

Is there something I am doing wrong ?

I am running wireshark 1.4.0 (SVN Rev 34005 from /trunk-1.4) under Vista.

Hello Glen,

according to the bug you've mentioned the lib which will be used for decoding the SNMP OIDs has some problems if the dependencies are not satisfied. One option could be to decode the OID by hand and verify if all needed MIB files to do this are on you system. This might be hard in case your not familiar with reading MIBs. The other option is upload a trace or post a hexdump of the packet, so that there is a chance to reproduce the problem.

Hello Oliver, the thing is I havent even loaded a capture at the point when this message appears. I tried replacing the SNMPv2-SMI file with another one and the same message occurs.

I see that a bug was raised - https://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=5171 - but marked was WONTFIX. This seems odd to me - the file is shipped with Wireshark isn't it?
