PSI (v3.0.0.6001) is telling me that Wireshark needs updating. When I right-click on Wireshark in PSI and look at details, I see it is complaining about C:\Program Files\Wireshark\Wireshark.exe, installed version 1.12.5.0.

However, from inside Wireshark, when I run "Check for updates" from the help menu, it tells me that I am up to date and that v1.12.5 is the latest version.

Running another PSI scan doesn't fix the problem.

I do not use Wireshark but it looks like there is a newer stable version. https://www.wireshark.org/download.html
Is that what you are looking for?

You are not reading the Release Notes correctly. This makes it very clear from WireShark

I think it is a misunderstanding.
Have a nice day!
