  With reference to the earlier message, I next changed the Configuration type to 
  release REMOTE NO AIRPCAP type and there I get the following warning and error

  Error    2    fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file '../libpcap/win32/prj/release_REMOTE/libpcap.lib'    wpcap    

I think it's a dependency problem in the wpcap.dll project. At the moment the easiest workaround is to download the AirPcap developer's pack from


Otherwise, first compile the libpcap REMOTE release build configuration and then the wpcap release REMOTE NO AIRPCAP one. 

  When I changed the configuration to Debug REMOTE NO AIRPCAP  I get

  Warning    1    warning LNK4044: unrecognized option '/WARN:0'; ignored    wpcap    
  Warning    2    warning LNK4075: ignoring '/INCREMENTAL' due to '/FORCE' specification    wpcap    
  Error    3    fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file '..\..\Common\Packet.lib'    wpcap    
  Error    4    fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'wpcap.lib'    rpcapd    

You need to compile packet.dll (packetntx folder) in order to correctly link wpcap.dll

Let me know if this fixes your problem.

Have a nice day

  I am not interested in Remote capture or Aircap support or DAG support at the moment.
