Cannot access Ethernet interfaces with Wireshark Portable unless I install full WinPCap?

When I run Wireshark Portable as is, I only get 3 interfaces, and none of them are the ethernet ports. I have to install the full WinPCap 4.1.3, and only then are the Ethernet interfaces visible in Wireshark Portable. Is there and workaround to this? The application isn't really portable if it is dependant on you installing a second piece of software, particularly one that prompts you to reboot when you uninstall it.
