capinfos not working on Windows

asked 2021-03-25 17:10:55 +0000

I'm trying to complete a lab for college regarding CLI commands for Wireshark. However, capinfos, which is required for the lab, refuses to run, with Windows stating that " 'capinfos' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file ". I've reinstalled Wireshark twice now, making sure that TShark was installed as well for good measure, but to no avail. Am I better off using a Linux VM to complete this, or is the problem an easy one to fix? Thank you.

Does your lab have a setup section that mentions adding the Wireshark executable directory to the path or using fully qualified (absolute) path names to the executables?

It does not, despite my textbook telling me that it does. How would I go about doing that, if I may ask?
