When I start packetizer and click on "select the
network-adapter..." OR "Modify the global..." OR
"change capture options" the following message appears:

"Unable to get list of interfaces."

When I click on "Start a capture in this window" the
following message appears: "Unable to start capture.
Check adapter is selected."

The funny thing is: in the "Select Adapter"-window, the
Adapter-List is empty, though I have 3 real Adapters:
- 2x 3Com EtherLink XL 10/100 PCI-TX-NIC (3C905B-TX)
- 1x 3Com Gigabit LOM (3C940) (on-board)

plus
- two "virtual" adapters (VM-Ware)

and
- a networkbridge (between the two etherlinks)

so I cannot choose an adapter.

    This sounds like a winpcap issue.

    Try installing winpcap 3.01a from
    http://winpcap.polito.it/301a/download.htm
