All the WinPcap releases, including the latest beta, still contain the Windows 9x (95/98/ME) driver, and therefore can run WinPcap on these operating systems. However, we (the WinPcap team) don't provide support for this driver, i.e. we don't fix its bugs and we don't improve it any more. The sources too are still available in the current winpcap tree.

Hi Loris, thank you for the answer. May I ask you, what was the
last WinPcap release to support Win98SE and whether it would be
possible to get it?

We (like MS, by the way) don't support Windows 95/98/ME any more. We prefer to focus our limited amount of resources on enhancing and supporting the WinNTx versions. Therefore, WinPcap for Win9x must be taken "as is". Of course, we accept patches.

Hi, I downloaded windump 3.6.2 and downloaded and installed WinPcap 3.1 beta 4 on my Win98SE. Starting windump -D
from the run menue causes the system to freeze.

Remark 1: I tried also with WinPcap 3.0 (as the dependence on
WinPcap 3.1 beta 4 is not mentioned) and got this msg:
The WINDUMP.EXE file is linked to missing export
Remark 2: Same problem symptom with WinPcap / ethereal for both WinPcap versions: 3.0 _and_ 3.1 beta 4 !
