You shouldn't use the "--show" option when the password is not yet
cracked.  In fact, initially you shouldn't use any options at all.  You
should do simply:

python "C:\Telegram Desktop" > telegram.txt
john telegram.txt

However, that is probably not your only problem, because if it were then
you'd see "0 password hashes cracked, 1 left" (not "0 left") when you
tried to use "--show".  Claudio provided a response on this here:

Basically, to troubleshoot this for you we need to know (at least
roughly) what's in "C:\Telegram Desktop" and/or in telegram.txt.  Can
you show us the filenames and file sizes under "C:\Telegram Desktop" and
the file size of telegram.txt?
