[Winpcap-users] problem compiling winpcap example

Probably the Borland compiler doesn't add a definition of _WIN32 (or WIN32, I don't remember) in the preprocessor definitions.

Try to add those definitions to your preprocessor directives. Moreover, consider that we do not provide any support for Borland compilers, no I'm not sure if the lib files we  provide (that are for Microsoft Visual C compilers) are usable by the Borland compiler/linker.

Have a nice day

    I installed winpcap and downloaded the developer package. In order to run the examples given in developer package, I use Borland compiler (bcc32). I followed the instruction to add the linker to the lib and include. But I still dont succeed to compile the examples; and get error:
  pcap.h: unable to open include file 'sys/time.h'
  pcap-bpf.h: , expected 
  ...., etc

    I checked the pcap.h file and actually in this one there's:
  #if defined(win32)
  #elif defined(MSDOS)
  #else /*UNIX*/
  #include <sys/types.h>
  #include <sys/time.h>

    I am not running on a Unix, why did I have error with "sys/time.h" please?

    Thanks for your help,
    Best regards,
