Did you do a snort -W to get a listing of the interfaces on
the system?  If so, did you specify the enumeration of the
interface that you want to sniff on?  Try running 'snort
-dvi <intf>' to check that it's working, then try the -c
once you've established that.

I'd also recommend that you upgrade to the latest Snort
(1.8.1-RELEASE), make sure you have the latest winpcap.
