This is a separate issue from some of the widely reported crashes when attempting to install or upgrade Npcap 0.995. Future installers will address that issue by offering to disable Npcap until reboot, upon which the installation/upgrade can be reattempted, avoiding a crash.
This issue, solved in 88b8c89, is due to the driver unloading before all filter modules have finished detaching, and was introduced in Npcap 0.994.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
Because Npcap 0.995 consistently crashes some systems, the Npcap 0.996 installer will offer to disable the npcap driver service on the next boot so that the installation can be reattempted. You can also manually disable it by following these steps:
In an Administrator command shell, run: sc.exe config npcap start=disabled
If Npcap was installed in WinPcap API-compatible mode, also run: sc.exe config npf start=disabled
Reboot. There may be one more BSoD crash at this point, but it will be the last one.
Run the Npcap installer to upgrade Npcap, or uninstall it via "Add or Remove Programs" control panel. Since the service is disabled, it can safely be removed.
