Hello Gianluca,

FWIW we've been recompiling Winpcap at our company with MSVC2008Express 
since august last year. We didn't use the provided MSVC solutions but 
instead used CMake in order to integrate smoothly with our build system. 
We are compiling wpcap and packet as static libraries but it should be 
easy to switch to dlls. The advantage of CMake is that it will generate 
MSVC solution for either 2005, 2008 or 2010 MSVC compilers. My goal is 
also to use CMake for the compilation of the driver but up to now we've 
been using your batch files and the 2003 SDK.

If you are interested, I can see if I am allowed to contribute this 
build system to the WinPcap project.

By the way, are you planning someday to open up the development in SVN 
or Git? This is just a question, not a request :-)
