From the Wireshark Developer's Guide:

"To disable Lua the line variable disable_lua should be set to true in init.lua."

So as I understand it right. It just can be toggeld before I start Wireshark. Is it right?

Yes, that's right. Note that you'll need to have administrator privilege to modify the file though.

You only need admin privs if you install into a protected directory, such as the default "Program Files".

@grahamb Yes that is what I thought, too. But at the moment I am playing around with the Portable Installation. So the privileged rights are not my problem.
