I have a windows 7 64 bit computer. I have installed the latest version of acrylic and it runs just fine with my Afla usb wireless device. When I start the latest version of wireshark, it can see the wireless device. When I start to capture it runs for a few minutes before it returns one of these errors:

The network adapter on which the capture was being done is no longer running.


Dumpacp has stopped working

followed by:

Child dumpcap process died. Access Violation.

When the first error occurs, acrylic stops working and I have to unplug and replug the wireless device to make it work again.

When the second error occurs, I just have to restart wireshark and I can capture data for a few minutes before I get an error again.

These issues are likely to be with the Acrylic drivers. You'll need to take up the problem with their support.
