wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] tshark (Windows) not working

Re: [Wireshark-dev] tshark (Windows) not working

To: Developer support list for Wireshark <wireshark-dev@wireshark.org>

PS: Interestingly, when I open the Interface List dialog in Wireshark, it
shows live values in "Packet" and "Packet/s" columns for the interface.
However, when I "Start" the capture on the same interface, then it gives the
error below.
