I'm trying to decrypt some TLS data that is coming to one of my local applications. From my research it seems like i'm supposed to set an SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable and then point wireshark SSL to that file and then all TLS data should be encrypted. I did that and the data is still encrypted though... Is there something i'm missing?

Have you researched the Wiki page on SSL?

Amongst other useful information, that page also informs you that the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable is for use with Firefox and Chrome\Chromium and is unlikely to work with your own application.
