[Winpcap-users] pcap_freealldevs() causing program crash.

Does anyone know why, whenever I put in "pcap_freealldevs(devs);" into my
cleanup code (that frees all the memory, etc...that my program uses), it
always crashes?

devs declaration:
pcap_if_t *devs, *d; // Device list

My cleanup code:
void CDevice::Cleanup(){

// Free the device list

and how I'm using devs:
void CDevice::Devices(){
if(pcap_findalldevs(&devs, error) == -1){
} else{
for(iCount = 0, d = devs; d != NULL; d = d->next, iCount++){
cDescription[iCount] = d->description;

cDevice[iCount] = d->name;

I've been racking my brain for over an hour trying to figure out what I'm

(Note: I call Cleanup() in the WM_DESTROY Windows message)
