If you ever tried to have the famous Cain & Abel running on Windows 10, you may be unable to use it.
It will keep showing your network interface with 0.0.0.0 as IP address. Meaning you can’t scan the subnet looking for other computers.
Googling that issue, you will find some tutorials about fixing it, by forcing DNS prefix on the adapter (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Swk6hJ9oGM for example).
I think that this method don’t fix anything.
Anyhow, i came up with a workaround. Actually this issue is caused by WinPcap 4 not being compatible with Windows 10 (NDIS 5 VS NDIS 6). You may try to use alternative implementation of WinPcap like WinPcap 10 but for me, it didn’t worked.
I then removed the WinPcap version installed on my computer, and installed NPcap, selected during installation, the option to install it as WinPcap API compatible.
This solved the issue and Cain & Abel started working as expected.
You’are welcome 🙂 !
