Wireshark doesn't use %HOME on Windows. Per the Wireshark man page, "The personal preferences file is looked for in ... %APPDATA%\Wireshark\preferences (or, if %APPDATA% isn’t defined, %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Wireshark\preferences) on Windows systems."

So if you're able to manually set %APPDATA% to C:\Users\Username, then I think that should work for you; however, if you can't change the environment variable, then you ought to at least be able to do this with by wrapping Wireshark into a batch file, the contents of which is something such as:

@echo off
set APPDATA=C:\Users\Username
"C:\Program Files\Wireshark\Wireshark.exe"
