Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Wireshark Portable

The Wireshark portable app does not seem to be working correctly on Vista. I’ve tried it on several different machines. I keep getting the message “The NPF driver isn’t running. You may have trouble capturing or listing interfaces.” WinPCap is installed, and if the local version of Wireshark is installed, it works fine. I am able to successfully launch the local version, but the portable version will not run due to no interfaces being found. The portable version is working fine on Windows XP though. Is there a resolution to this?
