### Dumpcap captures traffic, but Wireshark and Tshark can't see the interfaces

Hello,

 I'm trying to work with Windows 8.1 with Wireshark 2.6.4 and npcap 0.99-r7. I obtain correctly the list of interfaces with dumpcap via prompt command, and I'm able also to capture some traffic on a specific interface with dumpcap, save it on .pcap files, and open them with wireshark.

However, if I try to use Wireshark GUI, there are no interfaces found, and so I cannot start any capture. If I type wireshark -D or tshark -D in the prompt command, I get the message "There are no interfaces on which a capture can be done". But with dumpcap -D my interfaces appear correctly.

Please, if somebody can help me, it would be great. I have reinstalled several times both npcap and Wireshark. By the way, I had a similar problem with older versions of Wireshark and WinPcap in this computer,  which I was not able to fix (although I didn't try previously to see if dumpcap was working correctly until now).
