[Windump] Windump on Vista

Did you run Windump with elevated privileges i.e. opening the command line right clicking on it and using "run as administrator"? Due to UAC, even if you are logged in as an administrator, you are in a locked down environment that prevents you to do what a normal administrator (i.e. pre-vista) would be allowed to do.

Hope it helps

  WinPcap 4.0 appears to have installed ok. When I run WinDump -D nothing returns. If I just run WinDump with or without switches I get this error: windump: PacketGetAdapterNames: The data area passed to a system call is too small. (122)


  What's up with that?
