NmCreateCaptureFile not able to create cap file RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • NmCreateCaptureFile is getting executed successfully and returning ZERO as return code but still this API is not able to create cap file on "C:\ \test.cap". It is creating cap on other paths successfully like "C:\\mytest\\test.cap". Although I have admin rights, but still I am facing this issue. Does this API have some limitation on paths?

    My requirement is to create cap file on any path. Can somebody please help me here? This is happening on Windows 7.

  • I believe Windows 7 prevents you from creating files in the root, unless you run your program with elevated permission.  What happens if you try to use notepad to save ot the root directoy, does that work?
