Wireshark 2.0.1. This is on a Windows 10 pc, with plenty of memory and CPU. Task manager shows I'm using less than 20% memory and CPU, the pcap is less than 1GB in size. Any debug info available on why it keeps crashing when I try to view statistics/conversations? The pcap file I'm trying to do this with is less than 1GB in size.

How much memory is it using (in kbytes)? Are you using 32- or 64-bit Wireshark? Does it crash if you split the capture in half and open each half (independently)?

I suspect you're running 32-bit Wireshark and you're running into the 32-bit memory limit (2 Gbytes). In this case using the 64-bit version should help.

On the other hand if one of the smaller captures causes the crash it may be a bug.
