Thanks Gianluca,
    This morning I made the change you suggested, but then I got all the following errors (and assumed this wasn't right):
   
  SendQWin32 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "int __cdecl pcap_sendqueue_queue(struct pcap_send_queue *,struct pcap_pkthdr const *,unsigned char const *)" ([email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@PBE at Z) referenced in function _main
  SendQWin32 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "struct pcap_send_queue * __cdecl pcap_sendqueue_alloc(unsigned int)" ([email protected]@[email protected]@I at Z) referenced in function _main
  SendQWin32 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "unsigned int __cdecl pcap_sendqueue_transmit(struct pcap *,struct pcap_send_queue *,int)" ([email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@H at Z) referenced in function _main
  SendQWin32 error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "void __cdecl pcap_sendqueue_destroy(struct pcap_send_queue *)" ([email protected]@[email protected]@@Z) referenced in function _main
   
  I might be totally wrong, but it sounds like I am missing out some #include directives...
   
  Thanks in advance,
  Marta

          Marta,
   
  it's a known bug in the documentation (due to a "const" qualifier that was added to the prototype of pcap_next_ex(), without reflecting the change to the samples).
   
  Here is the patch to solve your problem (marked with <------)
   
    int caplen,
  sync;
  u_int res;
  pcap_send_queue *squeue;
  struct pcap_pkthdr *pktheader;
  const u_char *pktdata;      <------
  /* Check the validity of the command line */
  if (argc <= 2 || argc >= 5)
  {
  usage();
  return 0;
  }
   
  Have a nice day

  Subject: [Winpcap-users] Compilation Error - Send queues
  

  Hello everybody,
     I am having problems with the compilation of the example code found in:
  http://www.winpcap.org/docs/man/html/group__wpcap__tut8.html
  Precisely, the first example  (sendpacket()) is fine; the problem is with send queues' code example. I tried both VS 6.0 and .NET2003. These are the errors I am getting:
   
  VS6.0:
  error C2664: 'pcap_next_ex' : cannot convert parameter 3 from 'unsigned char ** ' to 'const unsigned char ** '
        Conversion loses qualifiers
   
  .NET2003:
  error C2664: 'pcap_next_ex' : cannot convert parameter 3 from 'u_char **__w64  ' to 'const u_char ** '
   
  The code is exactly the one in the tutorial because I usually start by getting the example code to work and then modify what needs to be modified.
   
  I am really working in .NET2003, but I also tried VS6.0 just to make sure it was not a small mistake I might have overlooked. Any help with be greatly appreciated,
  Marta
