Hi Pascal,

Sorry that 0.04 r2 lacks some message, I added some extra trace in latest version, please try this and give me the log,

Also it's weird that our VirtualBox guests have different behaviors. Our hardware for the VM should be mostly the same. The Win10 image I installed is en_windows_10_multiple_editions_x64_dvd_6846432.iso, and I chose Pro edition to install. What edition did you install? Also it would be good if you can provide the .vbox file of your VM.

Hi Pascal,

Thanks for test. It's my typo mistake for the BSoD word, what I meant is the loopback interface didn't show problem, in fact they share the same cause. Because I didn't handle the error correctly in 0.03 r5 and r6, so it turns to a BSoD.

I can't reproduce it on my Win8.1 VM, Win10 VM and Win10 physical host. I used VMware Workstation 11.1.2 for my VMs. I don't know which type your VM is? There shouldn't be pretty much hardware difference between VMs. What special software has you installed on your VM? The boldest idea is that you provide a VM image that occurs this problem if you like.

In the VM system settings, I have checked IO-APIC, PAE/NX, VT-x/AMD-V and nested paging options with 2 processors. The network adapter is using the default setting (NAT).

I have the latest VirtualBox 5.0.2 r102096 installed on my Win10 x64 host, installed Win10 x64 VM on it, with Wireshark 1.99.8 and Npcap 0.04. I also checked IO-APIC, PAE/NX, VT-x/AMD-V and nested paging options with 2 processors. Network is default NAT. But the result turns out that I could see and capture on the Npcap loopback adapter, everything is fine. I think maybe you'd like to upgrade your VirtualBox to latest 5.0.2 to see what happens. If this isn't fixed, perhaps a brand new VM is needed.

Still no luck :(.  You will find attached the DebugView log taken with 0.04r2.

Hi Yang,

my Windows 10 x64 host does not reliably succeed to open the loopback interface either (I just tried it once before and it was working fine, but on next reboot it was not). You will find attached the log of version 0.04r2.
