Hi

I am able to use androiddump in Ubuntu, but I am unable to perform the same on windows with named pipe.

Below works on ubuntu, but if i perform the same on windows it does not work

1) mkfifo /tmp/wireshark

2) androiddump --extcap-interface=android-logcat-text-main-NUSV2E0042 --fifo=/tmp/wireshark --capture

3) wireshark -i /tmp/wireshark -k

In Windows I am trying to create named pipe and then invoke androiddump and wireshark from same script, using the examples from https://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSet...

Named pipe created using python example, but looks like androiddump seems to be unable to access the same.

    pipe = win32pipe.CreateNamedPipe(r'\\.\pipe\wireshark',
                              win32pipe.PIPE_ACCESS_DUPLEX,
                              win32pipe.PIPE_TYPE_MESSAGE | win32pipe.PIPE_READMODE_MESSAGE | win32pipe.PIPE_WAIT,
                              1, 65536, 65536,
                              300, None)

But I get below errros

* (androiddump.exe:11200): WARNING *: The path to the file "\.\pipe\wireshark" doesn't exist.

And when i launch wireshark as well from same script using step 3 above, wireshark also shows same error

"The capture session on \.\pipe\wireshark could not start due to error on pipe open: The system cannot find the file specified"

Please let me know if i am missing anything, thanks

Regards Vishwanath
