Weird - When I try, this is the link I get: http://sourceforge.net/projects/wireshark/files/St...

Which is clearly AMD64. Are you sure?

The link offered me a win64 version & started automatic download ; if you reject/cancel the download (popup) and click on WIRESHARK (blue coloured) link top left of the page , you are taken to a page offering the win32 download , plus a link to all te files. Confusing for non-techies and the unobservant/unlucky .

Well, then don't do that. I really don't see why this is an issue..

@slamgeden

I don't have a problem/issue ; I was commenting on the download & confirming that (for me) the download was good for win64.

I also mentioned a possible point of confusion or preferred option for people who might not want the auto run to start just then.

Ploonen does/did have a problem .

By the way , what does AMD64 have to do with it.

That it's the 64-bit architecture? He has AMD64, but somehow got the download for x86. 64 vs 32 bits.
