Have you tried either rebooting or restarting the WinPcap capture driver after having inserted the PCMCIA cards?

You can restart the driver by opening a command prompt and typing

"net stop start" and then "net start npf"

Hope it helps

  Hi all,


  I work with WinPcap 4.0 beta 3 on a Dell Inspiron laptop. The OS is a Win XP Pro SP2.

  My problem is that all PCMCIA cards aren't found (error 2) by CreateFileA(), called by PacketOpenAdapterNPF() function of the source file 'Packet32.c'. I've done my tests with Sony Ericsson GC79 and Option GlobeTrotter PCMCIA cards.


  I've searched in the archive of the Winpcap mailing list but I've not found any explanation or solution to my problem.

  Please anyone can help me?


  Thanks a lot for your help,


  Best regards
