I am a newbie to Snort and need  some expertise here. I downloaded Snort with the appropriate rules pkg.

I can run snort as a sniffer like c:\Snort\bin\snort -i 3 and all is well
but attempting to run it in IDS mode as

c:\Snort\bin\snort -c c:\Snort\etc\snort.conf -I 3    bombs out with the 
following error:

ERROR: c:\Snort\etc\snort.conf (231) Missing/incorrect dynamic engine lib
specifier. Fatal error-quitting.

I have attached the snort.conf file in hopes that someone can take a look
and advise/recommend/comment.
