if I start wireshark version 3.0.9 I get the output with "." e.g. "6.0" if I start wireshark version 3.2.2 I get the output with "," e.g. "6,0" for windows version of wireshark, buster version also shows "6.0" What do I have to do for windows version to get also "6.0" ?? I had a look to preferences/languages and it is always english.

Can you copy and paste the text from the Help -> About Wireshark -> Wireshark dialog for the 2 versions that differ in the output?

From your output:

with locale German_Germany.1252

The newer version respects your locale settings, the earlier version did not. To make Wireshark not use your system locale, set the locale to whatever is required in Preferences -> Appearance -> Language.
