Wednesday, September 02, 2009 3:47 PMHi, I've installed Microsoft Network monitor 3.3 on a PC with Windows XP SP3, my domain account is a member of the PC's administrators group. My problem is that Network Monitor 3.3 doesn't show any Network interface. So.... Is there a problem with the installation? or is a problem with drivers? or do I need a patch?
Thanks for your answer
Thursday, September 03, 2009 8:52 AMI had the following issue. After installing Network Monitor 3.3 on Windows 7 RTM I was unable to capture data because there were no network interfaces bound. I looked through all the forums and searched any references and they all said to reboot and to make sure you have administrators rights. I came across one blog entry that said to make sure you have the Netowrk Monitor 3 driver in the properties of your NIC adapter. I opened my properties and looked at my NIC adapter and the following was there:
Client for Microsoft Networks
Virtual Machine Network Services
QOS Packet Scheduler
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
Internet Protocol Version 6(TCP/IPv6)
Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)
Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver
Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder
I clicked on Install and chose service and listed was the Microsoft Network Monitor 3 Driver
So I clicked on the Microsoft Network Monitor 3 Driver and recieved the following error - to many services are installed. I thought this was very odd
So I looked at my services and chose the only one I could do without and that was Virtual PC 2007 SP1
I removed the item from Programs and Features view installed updates you should see the KB958559, click uninstall and then you can add the Network Monitor 3 Driver through the NIC adapter or repair the installation and this should install the driver.
In my case it was it may have been the number of services running in the adapter or it was the Virtual PC driver. It is one of the 2 and at this point I am satisfied with my install. Hope this helps

If you look at the NIC properties, does the Network Monitor Driver exists and is it checked?
If so, what do you see when you type "net start nm" at a CMDprompt?

Well the problem solved just installing the Network Monitor Driver.

Thanks plemaster and Paul,
I had a similar issue with a Windows 7 Professional system. After installing Network Monitor 3.4, it did not detect any networks. I needed to:
- Uninstall an existing service from the TCP/IP properties of the Wireless Adapter. It did not allow me to install the Network Monitor Driver as the list was full. I uninstalled the driver used by VirtualBox.
- Install the service for the Network Monitor Driver.
- Run Network Monitor as an administrator
