I have installed wireshark-win32-1.1.0 on windows server 2003 (Entreprise edition),
But for some reason each time I launch it I get the following error:
This application has failed to start because the applicationconfiguration is incorrect.
I tried reinstalling it many times without success.
Just to mention that on windows XP it works fine.

Mostly Wireshark malfunctions due to improper installation of WinPCAP. Please un-Install Winpcap and Install the latest version from the winpcap site. Then Install Wireshark.
