I am a wireshark user and want to do some development to add new protocol support from my side. But where are the dessector DLL files in windows installation? I only find one wireshark lib file with name "libwireshark.dll" and it is very huge of 38MB. Is it dessector support?
Yep, that's almost all the dissectors in that library.

There are also plugin dissectors which are in their own individual libraries in someplace like:
C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\0.99.7\
