Hi all,

as reported on this blog post:
network interfaces are no more showing up on the latest Windows 10 build (I
see the same thing on my virtual machine).
I could not find any clear information yet, but I fear it could imply that
Microsoft is gonna drop the NDIS 5 backward compatibility mode sooner or
later (which should be expected at some point as NDIS 6 was introduced in
Vista). Given the number of products / projects that rely on WinPcap
(Wireshark being one of them), having it not working anymore in the latest
Microsoft OS would be a drama.
I know that the project is more or less stalling since a few years. An
"emergency" fix was done for Windows 8 support, but I have no idea whether
having it working on Windows 10 requires a small fix or a full rewrite.
Could one of the developer kindly have a look and provide some info
regarding the Windows 10 compatibility / WinPCAP future?

Best regards,
