Wireshark doesn't work with Win7 64 bit

Tried to install and run Wireshark just to check that my WoW traffic was getting priority and cannot complete the wireshark install properly as it tells me the Wincap is incompatible, I was just wondering if anyone had a work around or am I stuck? many thanks in advance.

Odd, I don't remember there being any problems when I installed it and it works fine for me. I suppose you could try installing in compatibility mode for Vista or XP SP3?

There is a setting you need to tick, I think it was during install, that sets it up as a service.  Without that it won't work properly, then when you start Wireshark up it will start the service and work properly.
