WinPcap Incompitable with Windows 8
WinPcap is incompatible with Windows 8 and is not working/providing network statistics unless I start VPN. Dodgy Please help. Huh

Not it's not... I installed Winpcap without ANY problems on my Windows 8 laptop.

You do have the latest updates from Microsoft as well; as you could've found yourself, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2764462 is mandatory to use Winpcap on Windows 8.

Sure, But I've already installed this update still I'm facing this... I previously had overridden/allowed to install WinPcap which was 'sticky' with whatpulse original installer.

RE: WinPcap Incompitable with Windows 8
Mmmm, have you tried this?

- uninstall WhatPulse
- uninstall Winpcap
- double check if the suggest KB-update exists
- install Winpcap from their own site http://www.winpcap.org/install/bin/WinPcap_4_1_2.exe
- install WhatPulse

Concerning the pcap; I did notice IE was hesitant to download & save the installer so I switched browser first (Firefox), downloaded the installer from Winpcap and then ran it as Administrator (also, I got UAC disabled for the entire system). After that, installing WhatPulse worked without a hitch.

Proof of the pudding are my computers; my laptop (listed in my profile) is running 2.0.1 WhatPulse and pulsed just over 700MB yesterday.
