Troubleshooting

MailPasswordSniffer depends upon Winpcap packet capturing library. So if you have not installed it earlier or unchecked it during the Installation of MailPasswordSniffer then you will see the error message like below,

"This application has failed to start because wpcap.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem"

In such case you can run the installation of MailPasswordSniffer again (without de-selecting Winpcap) which will install the Winpcap library on your system. After that you should be able to run MailPasswordSniffer without above mentioned problem.
