Capturing loopback traffic on windows is awkward. Have you read and followed the various instructions on the Capture Loopback page on the Wiki?

Thanks, Yes I read, as I mentioned. I installed LoopBack driver and now after restart windows I saw it in drivers's List. I disabled my physical LAN card also. By selecting LoopBack driver, still I can't capture traffic. I set IP and mask I done all in blue box said by mitra (note for XP, but mine is win7) Thanks for your help

I converted your "answer" to a comment as that is the way this site works, see the FAQ for details.

I can only suggest you try more of the options discussed on the page.
