Please turn off promiscuous mode for this device

Sure, tell us where your computer is, and let us select Capture > Options and click the "Promisc" checkbox for that interface; that wil turn off promiscuous mode.

Or you could do that yourself, so that Wireshark doesn't try to turn pomiscuous mode on.

(The problem is probably a combination of 1) that device's driver doesn't support promiscuous mde and 2) a recent change to the Npcap driver caused it so that it no longer attempted to hide the error code that the driver returns from that from some crap code inside Windows that turns the "not supported" error that Npcap will ignore into some generic uninformative error that Npcap has no idea that it should ignore. Thanks, Microsoft!)
