Hi Yang,

Thanks for looking into this. 

I can't remember when/how I installed Win10PCap (guessing that I briefly had a look, but couldn't get it to do anything on my machine, and just removed it), but I'm using VMware Player 6.0.7 build-2844087 (haven't got Workstation/Server installed); and I tried a dance of upgrading/downgrading/upgrading my AR9485WB-EG WLAN driver (first by downloading the package from http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds032333, to take me from 10.0.0.242, to 10.0.0.75; and then using Device Manager's driver update function, to take me to 3.0.1.155 (which I'm guessing is probably older than 242 - I'm just guessing from the sketchy build dates) - which gave me a different type of BSoD, initially, after starting Wireshark, but let me capture traffic for a little while, after rebooting.

Here's all of the MiniDump summaries that I could find:

Frustratingly, since there are so many variables involved (unscientific method!), it seems like I'm playing a Jenga game with trying to make this work, since if I remove, or change something, it works for a little while, and then crashes in a creative, new way. (And I don't want to reinstall everything, since I don't have a disk big enough to back everything up). :(

I've uploaded a copy of the Nurago Web Meter to https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/670345/nurago%20web%20meter.exe, and I seem to also have an older installer for it in my "Downloads" directory, which may exercise the LSP architecture of WinSock differently.

The SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION error is interesting, as it is one of the few that reveals a problem in WinSock/NDIS...

I would try it in a virtual machine - but it wouldn't get us any closer to diagnosing why it fails to work, with my not-so-unique configuration.

Tyson.

After rebooting from uninstalling MS NetMon, I restarted Wireshark, and got the usual "NPF service not running; no interfaces available" note. This persists, even if I try "NPFInstall -r", and Wireshark still claims that no interfaces are available. 


"NPFInstall -r" isn't used in Npcap. "NPF service not running; no interfaces available" is a common problem for Npcap previous versions. And I think it should disappear if you have uninstalled previous versions totally.
 
Eventually, after uninstalling NPCap, removing all of the loopback interfaces, and running CCleaner to remove any residual registry data, and then rebooting yet again, I could start Wireshark, and list the installed interfaces - but unsurprisingly, a few moments later, I received another BSoD.

If it helps, my Wireshark version is:

I used Wireshark latest stable version: Version 1.12.6 (v1.12.6-0-gee1fce6 from master-1.12). But I don't think it makes a difference by using stable version or development version, as its WinPcap related low-level code rarely changed between these two versions.
 

Other than NetMon (which I've removed), the only other things that I think could be causing a conflict are either the VMware host-only networking filters; the networking components included with whatever Bluetooth stack Lenovo shipped; the massive pile of hacks installed by the Gacela component of "Nurago Web Meter", or my Atheros WLAN drivers (which caused Acrylic Wi-Fi's NDIS filters to crash, when I briefly had that installed, a while ago).

What version VMware are you using? Workstation or just Player? I used VMware Workstation 11.1.2 build-2780323 on my host, but I didn't install it on my test VM yet.
 

Cheers,
Yang
