[Winpcap-users] related to a capture device

I'm using Wireshark as sniffer where it opens capture devices via winpcap. I
want to edit the window registry related to the capture device opened by
To get the registry path of a capture device, we need to know its
SubDriverKey which could be specified somewhere in windows registry.
Right now in Wireshark we only have the name, description, and ip_address of
an opened device. Were they retrieved from registry table by winpcap? Is
there a way to get their corresponding driver key?

In addition, I hope to be able to disable/enable the capture device
programmingly. Does winpcap offer this kind of functionality?

Many thanks,
