Wow the whole WinPcap / NPcap thing on Windows is a big ball of pain and nonsense isn't it

WinPcap is no longer supported.

NPcap isn't open source and doesn't give a silent installer (ie: it is simply not usable in an organisation) unless you pay money.

Aaaand there goes Wireshark on Windows, straight down the tubes.


It never ceases to amaze me how many VERY high profile software projects simply have no clue that organizations exist, ie, places where users do not have Administrator rights on their workstation, and where all software must be deliverable via silent managed install.

"Installation instructions: First elevate to Administrator, then run the manual GUI installer"

Anaconda Python, I'm looking at you guys.
