I'm downloading and installing the wireshark windows PortableApps (32-bit) onto
a x86 64-bit machine running windows server 2008. I'm comparing running tshark
from here, with the same installation running on a 32-bit laptop with windows
XP.

When I'm on my windows xp machine, both the following commands work fine:

tshark -i - <IN05a.pcap
tshark -r IN05a.pcap

If I run the exact same commands on a windows server 2008 machine, the  -i
fails but the -r works. 

Here's what I see for the failing -i command:
===========================================
The NPF driver isn't running.  You may have trouble capturing or
listing interfaces.
tshark: WinPcap couldn't be found.
Unable to load WinPcap (wpcap.dll); TShark will not be able to capture
packets.

In order to capture packets, WinPcap must be installed; see

        http://www.winpcap.org/

or the mirror at

        http://www.mirrors.wiretapped.net/security/packet-capture/winpcap/

or the mirror at

        http://winpcap.cs.pu.edu.tw/

for a downloadable version of WinPcap and for instructions on how to install
WinPcap.
