I'm using WinPcap in a vb dotnet application through a wrapper.
The issue is : 
I have a multithreaded application, if I enumerate the devices with pcap_findalldevs_ex in the main thread everything is OK (I see network adapter, genericDialupAdapter and all the connected dialup adapter). But if I create a thread and then enumerate the net devices in this new thread I see only non-dialup network adapters.
Is there any permissions tips that I didn't know ?
I'm using : 
- Windows XP SP2
- WinPcap 4.0.2 (the latest version provided with wireshark)
