I don't think it's available on its own, only as part of a Wireshark installer, so grab one of those and install Wireshark.

Note that using libwireshark outside of Wireshark itself is quite a tricky task as it's not the intended role of the dll.

Also note that libwireshark is mainly for parsing data, it doesn't capture data.

Hi Thanks,

for the response, I want to parse data itself already grabbed, do you have any example for the same?

There's nothing I know of in the Wireshark community as all those folks use Wireshark, not libwireshark. Looks like you'll have to search elsewhere.

You will have to download the installer and instal Wireshark then you can copy the dll from the install directory. I have no idea if the .dll is usable stand alone or not.
