[Winpcap-users] Cannot get Packet.dll to load onr Vista

Well, if I install the Wdpcap exe, and it installs a Packet.dll in the Windoes\System - or SysWOW64 directory, it can be found and runs. But when I build my own Packet dll in Win32 or 64 bit and put both in Windows System or SysWOW64, the Vista cannot "see" or load them. Whne I rename mine to Packet.dll_mine and rename the one installed by the Wdpcap installer to Packet.dll, everything is fine. By the way, under XP Pro, my Packet dll loads and runs fine. 

Something is preventing a debug version to load under Vista. Anyone else having this problem and have a solution?
