nmapi.lib returns different data for 64 bit machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have captured network traffic (myfile.cap) using Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4 tool on Windows 64 bit machine. I have created a program in C++ using NMAPI.lib provided by Microsoft Network Monitor. When I load and parse this .cap file on 32 bit Windows XP machine and 64 bit Windows7 machine, data content is different on both machines. I am getting correct data on 32 bit Windows XP machine but not on 64 bit Windows7 machine.

    For 32 bit machine, I have used 32 bit NMAPI.lib and for 64 bit machine, I have used 64 bit NMAPI.lib.

    Can somebody please help me in resolving this issue?

  • Hi ModeLearner,

    Where are you seeing the different data?  Is this after performing parsing on a specific protocol?  Do you see these differences if you load the captures in the Network Monitor UI?

    If you haven't already, I'd suggest updating to the latest parsers on as that sometimes can resolve these inconsistencies if we've found bugs.
