Is there any easy way for me to make the .dll file from what i already have in linux? From what I read, I'd have to build wireshark in windows but it'd take me a while to get all the necessary tools and set up the environment. Is there an easier method to get a plugin working on a windows platform? And yes my plugin works fine and I was able to use the .so file to work on other computers with linux.

The easy answer is to submit the plugin to the Wireshark developers and put it in the core. The devs will then maintain it for you and the Wireshark build ecosystem will produce all the various builds.

If you must keep the plugin private, then your only option is to set up a Windows build environment. Follow the instructions in the Developers Guide to the letter and you'll be fine.
