I have an issue related to Interface list.

When i use tshark 1.4.6, using the command tshark -D through my code in C#, i can read the stream data directly and it returns all the interfaces on my machine.

But the same thing if i use with tshark 1.6.1, the same stream is not able to read anything. But it works well, when we write this on command line and not call it using c# code.

So, i want to know if there any change done for this in this new version which is creating this problem.

Here is the C# code, which is running fine and returning all the interfaces on my machine for tshark 1.4.6 but the same code is not working for 1.6.1.

I did not found if there is any change at this level for this command between versions?

                Process proc = new Process();
                proc.StartInfo.FileName = mTsharkPath;
                proc.StartInfo.Arguments = "-D";
                proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
                proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = false;
                proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
                proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;
                proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardInput = false;
                string aaa = proc.MachineName;
                StreamReader aaav = proc.StandardError;
                string line;
                List<string> ret = new List<string>();
                 while ((line = proc.StandardOutput.ReadLine()) != null)
                return ret.ToArray(); // returns all the interfaces connected on machine
