Error: The network adapter on which the capture was being done is no longer running;the capture has stopped.

I was trying to record the wireshark logs while running an application. I got the above error. Can someone tell me why I get this error?

You haven't provided details regarding the operating system and network adapter type involved.

Most often this happens if you disconnect the network cable to the interface on which you capture, but if it is not your case, the answer to another similar question may help you.
