Re: Nmap not working with Vista

I've just installed last stable version of NMAP  (4.50),  and It doesn't
work with Vista.

I'm afraid there's a problem with the setup file for nmap 4.50 (which has
been corrected in SVN and hopefully should be available on the website
early next month), it doesn't install WinPcap correctly on Vista. The
easiest way to get it working is probably to re-install WinPcap correctly
using the (tiny) setup file found at:


If you have UAC enabled, you may also want to consider changing a registry
setting to make it easier to use nmap:


Change the value to 2 (instead of the default of 3), and after a reboot of
Vista you should be able to use a Standard User or a normal Command Prompt
(rather than an elevated one) when running as an Admin user.
