Do the instructions on the Wiki SSL page help?

Basically, yes, you must extract the key from wherever it resides into a format that Wireshark can handle, usually a PEM file. For Windows, you'll need to install openssl to do this, export the certificate with the private key to a .pfx file (PKCS #12), and then use the openssl pkcs12 command given on the SSL page to extract the key. Windows will force you to protect the key in the .pfx file with a password, that should be given to openssl when it asks for it.
