in thread Net::Pcap installation help (and not with the library)

Hi, I'm getting an error at step 5 doing 'dmake test'.

The x64 libraries did not exist so I did have to do step 4.

First, my setup:

Win 7 64bit

Strawberry Perl v5.16.3 built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread installed at D:\strawberry

Net-Pcap-0.17

WinPcap v4.1.3

WpdPack v4.1.2

Patches 2-5 were applied.

'perl -V:cc' gives: cc='gcc';

'perl -V:make' gives: make='dmake';

Windows PATH:

PATH=C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.8.0-Q16;C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD + APP\bin\x86_64;C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD APP\bin\x86;C:\Windows\sys +tem32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\Windows +PowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Core +-Static;c:\program files\oracle\virtualbox;c:\utils;D:\strawberry\c\b +in;D:\strawberry\perl\site\bin;D:\strawberry\perl\bin

    You will get some test failures - I don't remember quite that many. But proceed with the process and create and run the test script in the install directory. Run it with 'perl -Mblib test.pl' from the install directory. If that runs fine, then do the 'dmake install'.

      Thanks for the prompt reply. Here's what happens when I try to run the test script:
      D:\strawberry\Net-Pcap-0.17>perl -Mblib test.pl Undefined subroutine &main::pcap_findalldevs called at test.pl line 3

        I don't know if it matters, but I have different versions:

        Win7 x64

        Strawberry Perl 5.16.1

        Net::Pcap = 0.16

        WinPcap = 4.1.2

        The patches mentioned were written against Net::Pcap 0.16, not sure how the update to 0.17 will effect them?

        Also, not sure how using WinPcap 4.1.3 with the headers / libraries (WpdPack) for 4.1.2 will effect compile and run?

        UPDATE: The patches definitely don't work by just running 'patch' on the Net::Pcap 0.17 version as the Makefile.PL has some additional lines throwing off the patch files. However, looking at the patches and manually adding them worked fine for me.

        I did get a compilation error at first about "undefined reference to `pcap_..." but that was resolved by simply recreating the x64 libraries according to step 4 of the process above.

        The test.pl file also didn't work - gave an "Undefined subroutine &main::pcap_findalldevs called at test.pl line 3". It seems the 0.17 version of Net::Pcap handles the ':functions' export tag differently. This is resolved with a new test.pl as follows:

        use Net::Pcap; @devs = Net::Pcap::pcap_findalldevs(\%devinfo, \$err); for my $dev (@devs) { print "$dev : $devinfo{$dev}\n" }
