Why do you want such an old version?

Some tshark filters which are used by internal scripts are deprecated in latest version of wireshark.

What are those filter expressions, and what you mean by "deprecated"? Note that, normally, "deprecated" means "you can use them, but you get a warning", not "they don't work"; if the filters don't work at all, we might be able to indicate what you should use instead, so you're not stuck using a very old version of wireshark which is not guaranteed to work on newer versions of Windows (so you may have to abandon it unless you continue to run the older version of Windows, even if only in a virtual machine), and is going to be harder to get to run on UN*Xes.
