I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2, 64 bit on a Virtual Server. There I want to install Wireshark to capture some of my network traffic for debugging purpose. During installation of Wireshark and WinPcap I ran into some problems.
I've installed the following packages:
When I try to run Wireshark I get the message: The NPF driver isn't running. You may have trouble capturing or listing interfaces
After some research I tried the command
sc start npf in a command prompt. But doing so I only get the result:
[SC] StartService Error 1275 Driver could'nt be loaded
I also had a look at Device manager -> Show hidden devices -> Non-PnP-drivers to look for the NetGroup Packet Filter Driver. But I can't find it. If I have a look at the installed programs, WinPcap was installed without any problems.
Any hints what to try next or what I'm missing?
Do I need to activate some specific features on the server? A reboot after the installation didn't help.
