I'm having a funny problem :)
I am building a small application that snoops the network with
For that, I downloaded the "WinPcap 3.1 Developer's Pack" couple of
days ago, and I used it within my application.
This works on my development machine, but I then wanted to test on a
separate machine that had WinPcap 3 beta 1 installed.
This worked, but as I used the 3.1 "final" APIs I decided to migrate
to WinPcap 3.1 "final". My application is now crashing at startup and then
this is what I get in the Microsoft Event Log:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: .NET Runtime 2.0 Error Reporting
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000
Time: 4:50:01 PM
Faulting application myapp.exe, version 22.214.171.124, stamp 445f0520, faulting
module wpcap.dll, version 126.96.36.199, stamp 42efe335, debug? 0, fault address

I tried on multiple machines and I have the same problem on every
So there are two possibilities:
* The API is not up to date (and works with 3.1 beta but not
with the final version),
* The beta version did not successfully un-install.
From my experiments, I would say this is the first option, as I
downloaded WinDump and successfully snooped network traffic...
Can anyone confirm that? Can anyone check that the sources available
on the download site are the proper one?
Does anyone have other ideas (on how to fix, or what to check?)
Thanks in Advance,
