"Procedure PacketGetAdapterNames failed. Error Code -6" error in Windows XP
Posted on 2004-10-19
I am getting the error "Procedure PacketGetAdapterNames failed. Error Code -6" when I try to start network analyzer type programs like ethereal, airsnare, etc. I have uninstalled and reinstalled them (and winpcap 3.0)
but I still get the error. Does anyone know why I'm getting this and how to fix it? I'm guessing it's a SP2 issue, but I don't know how to correct it w/o uninstalling SP2.
