Can we freely distribute customized Wireshark Windows installer with npcap?

We use our own plugin in Wireshark. Recently we recompiled our plugin to work with new Wireshark. But what we got to know that new wireshark uses Npcap instead of WinPcap support is now very limited. Our target systems are Windows Server 2012/R2/Windows 2016/Windows 10

We want to distribute the customized Wireshark to our customers, but this link point to some restrictions:-

https://nmap.org/npcap/oem/redist.html https://github.com/nmap/npcap/blob/master/LICENSE Also we tried using Win10Pcap (http://www.win10pcap.org/) but didn’t worked for us and code also seems to be 4 years old.

Our concern is:- Can we freely distribute Npcap for commercial purposes? If not does using Npcap with Wireshark involves any licence and how to obtain that? Is there a way of using Winpcap so that it works with latest Wireshark and supports Windows Server 2012/R2/Windows 2016/Windows 10?
