--- Comment #20 from Mike Baker <> ---
Guy, our company has 5 dissectors for custom protocols we use.  Previously, we
had been copying these .lua files to C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\x.y.z
folder each time a new wireshark release was available -- otherwise the .lua
files would be gone after the upgrade.  A recently-discovered alternative was
to instead copy the .lua files to C:\Program Files\Wireshark\, and just append
the "dofile" lines, one per dissector, at the bottom of init.lua, per the
example below:


My mistake was to NOT append the new init.lua, but just overwrite 2.4.0
C:\Program Files\Wireshark\init.lua with the 2.2.8 init.lua version.  My bad!
