Dear Developer Team,
The Alfa versions for Windows platform were much more stable than the currently released beta version.

1. You have to create a topology every-time, the saved topology never works
2. Wiresharks live capture still doesn't works as claimed in the release notes
3. Specifying the stable virtualbox version for wintel platform will be a good idea, the new version for Virtualbox is super buggy!

My humble suggestion is that the new version deployment strategy needs to be reworked upon, as new versions are disappointing.
Nevertheless the hard-work and dedication of developer team is much appreciated.

PS: Kindly take the feedback positively :)

If you're using an x64 Windows, you need to manually change the path from just "Program Files" to "Program Files (x86)". The beta's problem with Wireshark is that it doesn't find the executable correctly, and it doesn't even have the predefined path like 0.8.7 does.

But at least for me, it worked as soon as I fixed the path.

Hi,

Thanks for the response, however mine is 32 bit OS. Do you have an idea as how to fix the project saving issue? Where exactly do you change the path of wire shark by the way?

I have no idea... I haven't had this or a similar issue.

As a blind guess... maybe "manually" create the folder you're being asked to create? Check the temp dir in "Edit > Preferences" too, just in case.

In "Edit > Pferences", the "Packet capture" section.
