UrlSnooper / Re: PACKETT.DLL problem
« on: June 30, 2014, 03:37 PM »
Thanks for the very rapid reply.

The restriction you mentioned doesn't make it very portable, unfortunately. Might as well just install 2.34.01 on each computer, which is what I did.

It has been several years since I used URL Snooper, and I have a very basic problem, which I could not find addressed in the FAQ, etc.

If I Manually Scan a URL, or if I Perform a URL Search on Files on my computer, it all works just fine. And it finds my Network Adapter just fine. And when I sniff the network, it receives 50-100 packets (0 buffered locally). However, nothing is displayed in Index, Timestamp, URL, etc. I am sure I am doing something stupid, but I can't figure out what it is.


UrlSnooper / PACKETT.DLL problem

I just downloaded the portable version .zip file of URL Snooper (2.34.01) onto a USB stick, and extracted it there.

If I use the USB stick on my Windows XP Pro (SP3) 32 bit computer, Snooper opens just fine.

But if I use the USB stick on either of my two Windows 7 Pro 64 bit computers (desktop and laptop), when I try to open the .exe file, I get this error message:

"URLSnooper.exe - System Error
The Program can't start because PACKET.DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

Packet.dll is on my XP computer in the Windows\System 32 directory, but it is not on either of the Windows 7 computers, so I assume it is not installed by Windows. (Note: I have an earlier version of URL Snooper [2.26.01] installed ON my XP computer, so perhaps URL Snooper installed packet.dll then??)

I did note that on the Windows 7 computers, I had to run as an administrator. Not sure if that makes any difference.

Since it opens just fine on my XP, it must not be an installation problem. Have you seen this error, and if so, what is the solution?
