Hello friends,

I have a fresh installed version of Windows Server 2012 R2. Wireshark and Wireshark portable are not able to start. So i installed: Missing Pcap => Missing C Runtime => Missing DLL (one after another)=> Nothing. But it is not able to start.
It is not only me. When googled i found some guy with the same Problem but no one has a solution. How can i really install all dependencies.

I really dont know how to run this programm. Any Ideas? I

Perhaps there is one update from Microsoft missing. But waiting for updates is no option for me. I am a teacher and i have 30 of those Servers and only 45min. How can i run wireshark? I just wanted to show them DHCP Traffic.

To capture traffic you only need WinPcap or npcap. Once captured, the files can be copied elsewhere for examination.

I would concentrate on getting WinPcap installed, and then familiarising yourself with the windump command line options to make a capture.

There is also a built-in mechanism to capture traffic, but the files it produces can only be read using Microsoft Message Analyzer or the older NetMon, see here.
