Run"...........\wireshark.exe", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

It depends on those "...........". It is different in x86 and x64 Systems and in which mode its running.

Just search for the executable like here:

Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)
$wiresharkdir = ""
if FileExists("%ProgramFiles%\Wireshark\wireshark.exe") Then $wiresharkdir = "%ProgramFiles%\Wireshark"
if FileExists("%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Wireshark\wireshark.exe") Then $wiresharkdir = "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Wireshark"
if FileExists("%ProgramW6432%\Wireshark\wireshark.exe") Then $wiresharkdir = "%ProgramW6432%\Wireshark"
; MsgBox(262144,"",@lf & $wiresharkdir & @lf,0)
Run($wiresharkdir & "\wireshark.exe",$wiresharkdir ,@SW_MAXIMIZE)
WinWaitActive("The Wireshark Net","",20)
beep()
Sleep(500)
WinSetState("[last]","", @SW_HIDE)
Sleep(500)
WinSetState("[last]","", @SW_RESTORE)
Sleep(500)
WinSetState("[last]","", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

It didn't start maximized on my WinXP32bit from the start so I needed to put the WinWaitActive and WinsetState behind the Run function.
