Hi, is there a way to use wireshark.exe that will return a json without using tshark? I mean to give it a pcap and get a json back but only with wireshark.exe without using the GUI, only cmd command. Thanks

No. The entire purpose of tshark is to return dissection products in some textual form so why not use it?

Because tshark crashes with a specific dll dissector when wireshark gui does not

tshark shouldn't crash. Please raise an issue at the Wireshark GitLab issue tracker attaching the capture file if at all possible.

I'd rather know what that 'specific dll dissector' is. Not really interested in hunting down issues in closed source additions.

Could be in one of the distributed plugins.
