I'm guessing you're trying to install Wireshark. If you are using Windows, you will be needing WinPcap(Windows Packet Capture) because Wireshark uses its library to capture live network data on Windows. It also includes a driver which will support capturing of packets.

That is an excellent explanation, Greenie! I'm proud of you, you are learning something here!

Thanks OTW! That is a heart-warming compliment from the great OTW! I am flattered. But there are still so much to learn. Can't wait for your upcoming posts.
