This site was behind a Cloudflare proxy between September 22, 2016 and February 18th, 2017 and might be subject to sensitive information leaks. See this blog post for more details.

According to the documentation, running the installer with a "/s" will enable WireShark to be installed silently with the default settings.

I've downloaded wireshark-win32-1.4.3.exe and have been unable to get the /s switch to work.

After a manual install, I have tried a silent uninstall running "uninstall.exe /s". This does not work either.

Any help with the above?

Are you using /s or /S? NSIS (the system we use to create installation packages) makes a distinction between upper and lower case options.

Thank you. I didn't realise the switch was case sensitive. I have tried "/S" and it worked.
