[Winpcap-users] Building Winpcap for Vista on XP

I have modified it, new name to avoid collision of cource, to only support sending packages in an attempt to have one build usable on XP, Vista and Vista-x64. I have disabled WAN and almost every other feature define to make it small and handy. I can understand that I need two verions of the sys file for each architecture. It is howerver possible to use the same packet.dll on all systems even if I build everything on XP?


To sum up, how many version of the files mynpf.sys, mypacket.dll and mywinpcap.dll do I need and how many different systems to have to use to build them on?

You can build the WinPcap DLLs or kernel driver on the OS of your choice, but there are different versions of the driver for x86, x64 and NT4. There are two versions of wpcap (x86 and x64) and a number of versions of packet.dll (NT4, 2000/XP/2003, Vista/2008, in the x86 and x64 version).


What are you trying to do?


Have a nice day

	Can I use a winpcap built in a XP x86 environment on any of Vista x86 or Vista x64 or do you need to build it on every system? Please specify if this is true for either Packet.dll or the driver npf.sys.
