Rusty Navigator Microsoft VC++ 10 WinPcap Fix

So early this morning, working with the user “Mattsmgd” on the forum we solved a possible issue that I did not know existed with Rusty Navigator.

The problem existed on a fresh install of Windows 7 x64 and Rusty Navigator would crash upon starting, even with WinPcap installed.  Apparently the WinPcap library’s that are used within Rusty Navigator to listen to packet data require a few other .dll’s to run from the Microsoft VC++ Redistributable Package.  Without these, the WinPcap .dll’s cannot load at runtime and error out.

You can grab the required package here if you are experiencing this issue.  I’m also going to add this to the downloads section.  Most computers have this already installed, as its a common requirement for quite a bit of software out there.

A big thanks to everyone who has posted their bugs and suggestions on the Forums.  I appreciate your time to let me know! It’s the only way I know to fix something. lol
