Hi Team,

since a couple of versions (currently using 2.4.6.0) on a Windows 7 PC I get the below error when I select Manage Interfaces to add a remote interface:

Can't get list of Interfaces

Once I click on OK a couple of times it finally goes away and I can then add a remote interface. In between this Wireshark seems to freeze.

There seems to be some old Information cached somehow.

How can I get this back to normal?

THX

Steffen

Same issue here, all old external interfaces I traced once are kept in the list of remote interfaces. Evrytime I click Manage Interfaces the list is loaded. Strange feature is that Wireshark (MS windows 10, latest version 64 bits) states that "This version of Wireshark does not save remote settings"...

I uninstalled wireshark and did a fresh install, list is still stored somewhere in my profile I guess. I didn't find a way to clean this list.

I've had this issue too, if you go to the "Personal Configuration" directory (double-click on the link in the Help | About Wireshark | Folders dialog). There delete "recent" and "recent_common" files and this will stop the error message coming up everytime you launch remote interfaces. I've had to do this everytime after I use Wireshark. Sorry if this effects anything else, I've not tested it thoroughly but it works for my needs.
