I've followed the instructions at https://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/Loopback to enable capturing on the loopback interface as follows:
When I do ipconfig, I can see the Npcap adapter as follows:
However, it doesn’t show up in WireShark’s list of interfaces. There I have just my normal LAN and WLAN interfaces.
What could be preventing WireShark from seeing the Npcap interface? Is there some extra configuration I can try?

Thanks to Pascal and Kurt for responding to Npcap's questions before I got here:)
This problem seems to be that the loopback adapter was failed to be opened by the driver, so it will not show up in the interface list of Wireshark/
You can enable the logging of Npcap by using the following debug version: https://svn.nmap.org/nmap-exp/yang/NPcap-LWF/npcap-nmap-0.05-debug.exe
Then you can use DebugView Pascal has mentioned, to capture the debugging trace when Npcap driver is first started. ensure you selected "Capture Kernel“ and "Enable Verbose Kernel Output" when using DebugView. As Npcap starts its driver when installation is done, you can start DebugView before installation finishes, then launch Wireshark and show the interface list, then save the log in DebugView, and send it to me ([email protected]).
