We at least should fix the error message.  "Invalid keyword '}' for server configuration" should be more like "unsupported decompression: 'lzma'".

I've asked about this before and have yet to get any response from the Development team.

The below line in the snort.conf breaks Windows because there is a missing library to decompress.

decompress_swf { deflate lzma } \

What do we need to do as Windows users so we don't lose this function?

Is there going to be a fix available soon, and are you looking into it?

Kindest regards,
