You can't capture traffic of a COM port (serial Port) on Windows with Wireshark, as the capturing library (WinPcap) does not support this.
What you need is a COM port sniffer for Windows. Please google that. You will find tools like these:
BTW: There seems to be a way to capture serial port traffic with Wireshark and named pipes. However, you would need a helper tool.
I think it's easier to go for the COM port sniffers I mentioned first.
