Winpcap 4.1.2 Windows 10


The WinPcap project has ceased development and WinPcap and WinDump are no longer maintained. We recommend using Npcap instead.

  1. Winpcap 4.1.2 Windows 10 Installer

WinPcap Description WinPcap is the industry-standard tool for link-layer network access in Windows environments. It allows applications to capture and transmit network packets bypassing the protocol stack, and has additional features, including kernel-level packet filtering, a network statistics engine and support for remote packet capture.

If you do insist upon using WinPcap, be aware that its installer was built with an old version of NSIS and as a result is vulnerable to DLL hijacking.

For the list of changes, refer to the changelog.

For 14 years, WinPcap was the standard libpcap package for Windows. But whenWindows 10 was released without NDIS 5 support, WinPcap failed to keep up,leaving users wondering what to do. Fortunately, the Nmap Project stepped upand converted the original WinPcap to the new NDIS 6 API, giving users a fastand completely compatible alternative to WinPcap for Windows 10.

Windows 10 1607 also introduced strict driver-signing requirements that WinPcapcan't meet. Npcap is fully compliant, with its drivers tested and co-signed byMicrosoft.

Built on the tried-and-true WinPcap codebase, with a host of exciting newfeatures, and extensively tested with currently-supported versions of Windows,Npcap is the future of WinPcap. Ready to give Npcap a try? Just download the latest installer. Npcap works greatwith Wireshark, Nmap, and more of your favorite tools already. For softwarethat's written with WinPcap in mind, simply select 'WinPcap API-compatiblemode' at installation.
