How to install WinPcap on Windows 7.

  1. Download WinPcap.
  2. Right click on the downloaded installer file and open Properties.
  3. Go to the Compatibility tab.
  4. Check the box saying Run this program in compatibility mode.
  5. Select Windows Vista Service Pack 2 from the drop down menu. Choosing a different operating system may also work but I have not tested them.
  6. Then at the bottom of the options box check the box saying Run this program as an administrator.
  7. Click on Apply and OK.
  8. Then run the WinPcap installation again.

WinPcap will then successfully install.
