[Winpcap-users] winpcap 3.2 and AMD64

ss written in the changelog for the release of WinPcap 3.2a1, the port to x64 affects the driver, which is now 64 bit. The user level DLLs (packet.dll, wanpacket.dll, wpcap.dll) are still 32bit, so no modification should be done in your application, provided that you compile your app as a 32bit executable, which is normally what all the WinPcap based apps do. If you want to compile your app as a native 64bit app, then WinPcap at the moment does not support it, since we haven't ported the user level code to 64bit.

Hope it helps

  I've written a tool recently using winpcap on i386. I need to port this port to AMD64 and understand that support has been added in the 3.2 alpha code. Are there any examples or documentation about how to use the AMD64 interfaces ? 

  Thanks for any guidance.
