Many thanks for reply. As expected it is a quite stupid question, but where
do I find the files. I have downloaded from
the following archives:

But none of them contains a file readme.developer, and the
winpcap\wpcap\libpcap\README.Win32 does not answer my question. It looks
like I missed the correct starting point or "main" source archive.

Can give me anyone a clue?
