Wireshark + Savvius WiFi Adapter for OmniPeek (802.11ac)

Wireshark v2.0.1 seems to have some problems with the WiFi Adapter for OmniPeek (802.11ac) and the Ralink v5.1.12.48 driver under MS Windows.

Starting a capture on the adapter Wireshark throws an error message:
"The capture session could not be initiated on interface '\Device\NPF_{1D4EEE59-5B85-484F-A274-7CD8354E5F86}' (failed to set hardware filter to promiscuous mode)."

How can I fix this? Is Wireshark not supported by your 802.11ac adapter?
