doArp can only handle IPv4 addresses

What is your output of the "nmap --iflist" and "ipconfig" commands? This
is reminiscent of a problem someone was having using a special VPN


and if i run using --unprivileged option, i still get error even though i
am administrator( admin privileges )
d:\>nmap -sVC -O -T4 --unprivileged
TCP/IP fingerprinting (for OS scan) requires root privileges.

You cannot use -O when you are using --unprivileged.
