I have installed Wireshark-0.99.4 (WinPcap-3.1) on Windows 2003 server
installed as a virtual machine over VMWare.

When I start Wireshark, the capture window does not list any interfaces
in the interface dropdown. I also installed WinDump and
ran the command 'WinDump -D' and this also did not return any interfaces.

When I check the network properties for the LAN it shows the adapter as
'SWSoft Virtual Network Adaptor'.

Has anybody seen similar problems ? Are there any known issues while
running wireshark on VMs ?

Thanks in advance,

P.S I have also tried Wireshark 0.99.5 with the same behavior.
