Nikon Capture allows you to control the camera from the PC/Laptop, but it will not be able to replicate the image of the VF on the camera, cos after all it's a SLR, CCD is not active until shutter is released.
However you can use Nikon Capture Camera control to activate the camera and shoot, it'll auto download to the PC after recording the image.

There are view-finder capture cameras for professional though (Can't remember the particular name for it). It's like a video camera that fit on the view-finder where your eye-piece is supposed to be. So it relay real-time feedback to a monitor screen elsewhere.
More for sports photography application when photographers are not allowed too close to the action.

you cant do that because the mirror reflecting light up and into the viewfinder. the ccd will capture the image only after the shot is fired.
