Since a much to long time i have an ugly issue that wireshark is not starting if i run a virtual workstation with my vmware workstation. Wireshark starts - i can see very quick a screen and then wireshark close at once!

OS: Windows 7
Wireshark: V2.2.3
Vmware Workstation:  V11.1

If i stop vmware and restart windows or does not start any vmware system wireshark starting normal.

Any ideas how i can solve that problem without rebooting the system ? And that i can run both simultaniously ?

Thanks in advance.

My first guess is that this is a driver problem - likely the WinPcap driver or the USB driver if you installed it. It sounds like it may be trying to attach to one of the virtual interfaces and can't.

Hi,

unfortunaltely my problem is still not occuring... also after an update to wireshark V2.26.

Does some knows if wireshark provide a startup log? (Which tell me what going wrong)
Windows eventviewer does not tell anything.

Did you ever figure this one out, Matthias?
