I have tried it and the content of the capture file (which I have given the name of 'dump.txt') is quite unreadable.

Out of curiosity, does the sample in the WinPcap developer's pack named 
wpdpack\Examples-pcap\savedump lose packets as well?

Have a nice day

Hi

I am implementing a packet sniffer with VS. I posted some time ago problems 
with losing packets, and someone here suggested me that it could be a 
problem between disk access and NIC speed.

I have done some research, and it seems this doesn't happen to Wireshark 
because of the use of a ring buffer. Can someone tell me which files (apart 
from ringbuffer.c) are involved in Wireshark avoiding packet loss? Can I use 
any configuration of Winpcap function parameters for losing less packets?

Thanks in advance
