get_field_data: code should not be reached (PDML File)


Hello all--

I am trying to export pdml using wireshark for a trace containing h245 traffic. The export from GUI crashes while trying to export.

I then tried tshark -r tandberg.pcap -T pdml; It gave me error

ERROR:print.c:715:get_field_data: code should not be reached

I have tried to search the error and a bug report was filed[email protected]/msg22849.html

It does say that -V should be able to handle it, however, the output generated with -V option does not contain XML file.

I will be grateful for any help by community.

Thanking you in advance

Regards Lonex

I was able to fix it, by downloading the code and commenting the portion where the error was occurring.
