i got this error:

The capture session could not be initiated (failed to set hardware filter to promiscuous mode).

Please check that "\Device\NPF_{9E2076EE-E241-43AB-AC4B-8698D1A876F8}" is the proper interface.

If that's a Wi-Fi interface, try unchecking the promiscuous mode checkbox; Windows Wi-Fi drivers often reject attempts to set promiscuous mode.
