Wireshark 3.6.4 on Windows 10 (64 bit) install error.

I am trying to install Wireshark 3.6.4 on a Windows 10 machine (current on updates). The error I get says ""The Visual c++ Redistributable installer failed with error 113. Please make sure you have KB2999226 or KB3118401 installed. Unable to continue installation" Those KBs are not valid for Windows 10. I rebooted my machine. I reinstalled the Visual C++ Redistributable 2015-2022 and still get the same error. The older version of Wireshark (3.4.14) installs fine. Anyone have a clue?

Same issue (I also have an unanswered question posted). I also noted that:

Wireshark-win64-3.6.3.exe installs without error.

Wireshark-win64-3.6.4.msi installs without error.

Adding to this, I can extract the vcredist_x64 installer from the Wireshark install files when the install fails and run it manually without issue. Also note I had uninstalled all VS2015 versions of vcredist and had rebooted.

There was a packaging error for 3.6.4 which should be corrected with 3.6.5. See GitLab Issue 18077

The installer stops at

"C:\Program Files\Wireshark\vcredist_x64.exe" /install /quiet /norestart
vcredist_x64 returned 110

However, the Visual C++ Installer at that file location is actually vc_redist.x64.exe

Navigate to C:\Program Files\Wireshark\ and rename vc_redist.x64.exe to vcredist_x64.exe and the installation should run fine.

See the other post. 3.6.5 worked for me where 3.6.4 failed.

The post below ... posted some hours ago ... seem to suggest that 3.6.5 will be out soon and will fix it. I did reinstall 3.6.3 and it is running OK.

((((( This is due to a slightly different problem. We switched to Visual Studio 2022 for the 3.6.4 build, and unfortunately I missed backporting a change which is required to support that. I'm working on the 3.6.5 release, which should be out in a bit.

This resolution worked for me, thanks yoon!

However, the Visual C++ Installer at that file location is actually vc_redist.x64.exe

Navigate to C:\Program Files\Wireshark\ and rename vc_redist.x64.exe to vcredist_x64.exe and the installation should run fine.
