SMARTRFTM-STUDIO: SmartRF Packet Sniffer 2 Installer not detecting Wireshark



I am trying to install SmartRF Packet Sniffer 2 on a windows 7 64-bit computer. I installed Wireshark 2.6.4 prior. But SmartRF Packet Sniffer installer is giving an error message that it did not find Wireshark. How do I fix this?



  • Hello Jeffrrey,

    You will need to install plug ins manually. This is because it is probably installed in program files(x86).

    Go into the packet sniffer install directory and go to the plug in folder, in my case its here:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Texas Instruments\SmartRF Tools\SmartRF Packet Sniffer 2\wireshark\plugins\2.4.x

    You will need to copy two of the files (pick only the version you have, if its 64 bit use x64)

    Now look for the install directory of wireshark, it should be in program files and go into the plug in folder. In my case it is here:

    C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\2.4.10

    Now paste the files in here.

    That is all you need to do in order to manually install it.
