I have problem with tshark when I'm trying to save interface list into a file. I used comand: tshark.exe -D > file.txt and file was created but it is empty. In console I can see list of my interfaces. I'm using wireshark 1.6.4 and have this problem. On wireshark 1.4.2 all works fine.

tshark outputs the interface info on the standard error stream (stderr). To redirect this to a file use the redirection operator "2>", e.g. tshark.exe -D 2> file.txt.

I have no idea if this changed after 1.4.2, but is the current situation.
