Hi Juanjo Martin,

This feedback might be a bit naïve (particularly as Pascal knows this stuff 
better than me) but I think it might be down to naming.


  *   Your dissector function is called dissect_shapetype(…)
  *   Your registration handoff function is called 
  *   Your dissector registration function is called proto_register_shapetype(…)
  *   And you register the protocol with an abbreviation shapetype

I think you should generate a plugin called shapetype.dll.

Best regards…Paul

Hi Juanjo,

Hi all,

I am developing a plugin. It works for me but when I try to give it to other 
developers, some of them get the following error:


I am using VS2012 in Windows 64 bits and I have asked one of the developers to 
try installing the redistributable for that version and still failing.

I have tried searching in the code but I can't find anything that leads me to a 
solution. Any thoughts?

Just some blind guesses based on my past experience:
- have you built the plugin against the source code of Wireshark 2.4.X? 
Wireshark does not ensure (understand systematically breaks in practice) the 
API between major releases so a plugin built for Wireshark 2.5.1 cannot work 
with Wireshark 2.4.5
- are they running a Wireshark version matching the architecture (x86 vs x64) 
used to build the plugin (but if I remember correctly the error differs in that 
- Wireshark 2.4.x official installers use MSVC2015, not 2012. Could you build 
the plugin using MSVC2015 Community Edition and check whether it works fine?
