Hello Yang,

I did not use a VM to test Npcap 0.04.   The two Windows 8.1 systems I tested with were running Windows directly on the hardware.

I installed the 0.04-r2-debug-2 image but (as expected) the Npcap Loopback adapter was not visible to Wireshark.  I started DebugView, I enabled the two additional DebugView options you requested, I installed Npcap 0.04-r3-debug-2, I waited for perhaps 15 to 20 seconds and then started Wireshark.  I left Wireshark up for several seconds then shut it down because there was no loopback adapter.  I let DebugTest run for a few minutes before grabbing the attached log file.

I hope you find something useful in the log.

Jim Y.

Hi Jim,

Did you also use a VirtualBox guest to test Npcap 0.04? I think the cause is the same with Pascal: I added Winsock Kernel init code to loopback interface's OpenAdapter op, if the init fails, the adapter fails to be opened. There're also two ways, first provide me the reproduce steps if you think it's viable. The second is to use the debug version, I have updated the version to 0.04-r2, you can use the debug one and give me the DebugView text I documented for Pascal.

Improvements in Npcap 0.04-r2:
1) Wireshark now can see Npcap version 0.04 instead of 0.03.
2) Added some trace message for WSK.
