NPPTools.dll missing error in Vista

I was running the recent RC's with this same problem.


I am currently running Nmap 4.50 on my home Vista machine. Yes, I know Vista
sucks, but its what I got ;-) And yes, UAC is off.


Anyway, my problem is that when I try to start many different nmap scans, I
get the following errors:



WARNING: Could not import all necessary WinPcap functions.  You may need to

ade to version 3.1 or higher from http://www.winpcap.org.  Resorting to

) mode -- Nmap may not function completely


Windows pop-up:

This application has failed to start because npptools.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


I get both of these simultaneously, and the scan fails.


I tried installing the Microsoft Network monitor driver due to suggestions I
read on some other forums. No change.


Any ideas?
