[Winpcap-users] Winpcap adapter names

I moved from wizpcap3.1 to 4.0 alpha 1. At the same time I replaced calls to 
pcap_findalldevs by pcap_findalldevs_ex. I'm not sure which change caused 
the "issue" below.

The network adapters now have a name like "Network adapter 'adaptername' on 
local host". When displaying the adapters in a dropdown box, this looks 
messy. Is there a standard way to just get the adapternames? If not, would 
it be safe to scan for the single quotes to obtain it?


PCAP_OPENFLAG_NOCAPTURE_LOCAL functions as expected, thanks for 4.0!
