ProfiShark not detected by Wireshark on Windows

In case Wireshark is not detecting ProfiShark as a capture interface, try the following:

  • Open a Command Prompt (cmd) window as Administrator
  • Run 'net stop npf'
  • Run 'net start npf'

If the problem persists, restart the host computer* with the ProfiShark connected.

*This solution applies only for Windows hosts.
