[Snort-users] WinSnort and MSSQL Problem

Yes, there was a bug in Snort 2.0.6 (Build 100) and 2.1.0 (Build 9), 
preventing the Win32 Service from starting.  It has been fixed in 2.1.0 
(Build 10) available from our website (www.codecraftconsultants.com).  

Snort 2.0.6 was not fixed on snort.org because 2.0.x versions have been 
discontinued.  However, a fixed installer for 2.0.6 (Build 101) is 
available from www.codecraftconsultants.com.
