[Snort-users] XP / Snort / Error opening device

I have searched the archive and haven't seen a solution for this problem

I am getting the following error:

ERROR: OpenPcap() device  open:
        Error opening adapter
Fatal Error, Quitting..

Does anyone know how to fix this ?  I am running Snort v1.85 on Windows
XP with WinPcap v 2.3. I have used Windump to verify that WinPCap is
working, and that works fine.  I also have done snort -W and get the
following info:

Interface       Device          Description

It only shows 1 interface with no name or description.

I hope someone has an answer.
