Just a quick follow up.... it looks like 3.23RC3 still does not work for 
me on my Windows Vista machine. Looks good on XP.
Hi Alan.  Thanks for the report.  Would you try installing the latest
official WinPcap installer from http://www.winpcap.org/ and then rerun
3.23RC3 and see if that helps?

I am not sure why some reports of Vista errors are different then 
others....  I am running Vista Ultimate (fully patched)... don't know if 
that would make a difference. 

I uninstalled the old WinPcap,  installed WinPcap 4.1 beta2 and things 
worked much better, but there were still some errors or odd reporting, 
not sure what it means... "_ifcombo_name: Mapping unknown interface type 
131 to "net"."  However after several of those it works...

As a side note I am surprised Nmap did not report a little better OS 
info at scanning scanme.insecure.org.

Below are the full results of my Nmap scan, errors and all.
