Attero: Why newer versions of Wireshark not supported?
The version of Wireshark loaded is the latest one “supported” by Spirent. It includes a decode of the Spirent Test Signature that is encoded within packets sent from Spirent TestCenter. It is possible for the user to use a newer Wireshark version. The Attero application will display an alert (see below) that the Wireshark version installed is not supported, but it will not prevent its use.
The wireshark location is fixed to first look at "C:\Program Files\Wireshark" then if it doesn't find it, it will look in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Wireshark".
There is no setting in the Attero application to change the wireshark location.
