Just an option, but, we use Application Security
(www.desktopstandard.com) to elevate winpcap to run as an admin for non
admins on execution of a program that uses it. It's been working great.
We have an entire office (300+ users) all in a 100% LUA environment.

Cisco's VoIP Silent Monitoring uses winpcap.

But that will only start the driver/service for the current boot.  It
won't set it to start automatically.  (Also, you need to be a local
administrator to run this, so it doesn't really fix the problem.)

The way to set the startup mode is with sc.exe, as in my last email.
Or, use device manager.

(Actually, thinking a bit more, I found a bug in my sc command lines.
They should be "sc config <service> start= automatic", not boot.  Boot
is way too early.)
