[Winpcap-users] WinPcap and Windows 7 64-bit

WinPcap 4.0.2/4.1beta5 do not officially support Win7 yet. In order to install them on Win7, you need to run the installer into Vista compatibility mode: right click on the installer and choose properties. Go to the "compatibility" tab, enable the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and then choose "Windows Vista". Then click "ok" and run the installer executable.

I've successfully installed WinPcap 4.1beta5 on a Win7 machine, I've never tried with 4.0.2 but it should work.

Have a nice day

  I haven't been able to install either WinPcap 4.0.2 or WinPcap 4.1 beta5 on my computer.


  I have Windows 7 Ultimate RC 64-bit.


  Is there anything that either I or you can do?


  Thank you,
