I have done some more searching, but not found much. I saw Fyodor
commented in September that 4.22SOC7 should have fixes for Vista.
http://seclists.org/nmap-dev/2007/q4/0030.html Unfortunately the fix
may not have done everything.
I have WinPcap-Nmap 4.01 installed (never had anything older installed),
but the command line says the following....
nmap -v scanme.nmap.org
WARNING: Could not import all necessary WinPcap functions. You may need
to upgrade to version 3.1 or higher from http://www.winpcap.org.
Resorting to connect() mode -- Nmap may not function completely

Is there a difference between Nmap's WinPcap and standard WinPCap? I
saw there were comments in WinPcaps forums that Wireshark had a modified
WinPcap. It can get scary when different groups want their own modified
versions of standard things like WinPcap.
thanks for your thoughts on this...

Running Nmap 4.22SOC7 on Windows Vista I am getting the following error
on starting Nmap.
"nmap.exe - Unable To Locate Component"
"This application has failed to start because NPPTools.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
This is the first Nmap release for me to use on my new Vista machine.
I tried reinstalling a few times and even did an uninstall of Nmap and
WinPCap to see what would happen.... but nothing.
