I'm Automatically capturing logs in .pcap format using below command dumpcap.exe -i 4 -a files:3 -a filesize:5 -w test.pcap
how can convert this files to .txt format automatically using dumpcap command....

dumpcap always writes pcapng or pcap files by default, depending on the version of the executable, so the "logs" are always in a binary format. No way around that. If you need text files you can try to use tshark to display decoded data after it has been written to disk, or you could use Wireshark to export the packets to decoded .txt format manually.
Why do you need .txt format anyway? Usually it is more useful to have the binary format since it can be worked with much easier.
