I've just had my WS notify me of V3.6.7 with a popup "Software Update' window. Clicking on any of the links in the "Release notes" pane opens the link on Internet Explorer, not in Edge. I think my file associations are correct. Ah, what association would this be using if it is using one? Is this something I have to fix with a registry hack?

That's entirely up to your workstation and this is not at all an issue of Wireshark. So I suggest you find a forum more suited for this question.

The Wireshark popup is the ONLY thing on my PC which opens links in IE. Googling didn't find anything useful. I suppose I could try and make sense of the source code, but I am asking what the mechanism which creates/opens those links is.
