I am using wireshark in windows 7. While opening wireshark it is not showing the interfaces for capturing the packets. I did troubleshoot, for the first time it had shown the interfaces and I was able to capture packet, but when reopened again no interface and showing Error = 0;this "can't happen". or showing that- No interface can be used for capturing in this system with the current configuration. See Capture Help below for details.

Is there any solution for this?

This comes up a lot, you can use the search button to look for similar questions, such as this one: NPF Driver problem in Windows

the problem is, that the search function does not work properly. See my latest comment in bug 7223 from july.

So, even if people use the search function, they won't be able to find the relevant answers.

Try it yourself:

Search for: npf driver problem -> 3 questions
Search for: driver problem npf -> 0 questions

Something is broken in the search function, if the order of the search words make such a difference.
