Install snort 2.1.3 build 27 and winPcap 2.3 (2.3-winpcap.exe) when I run it for he first time i get this fatal error message:
C:\Snort\bin>snort -l c:snort\log -c c:\snort\etc\snort.conf -A console
Log directory = c:\snort\log

ERROR: OpenPcap() device  open:
        Error opening adapter: Overlapped I/O operation is in progress.
