Distribution of nmapi.dll file (Netmon API) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing a small application that is using nmapi.dll and managed code by NetmonAPI.cs. In what way may I redistribute the nmapi.dll file?

    May I include it in my application, or does the user need to retrieve it from Network Monitor installation?

     

    Thanks,

    Tobias

  • I don't believe you can - that Dll is part of the operating system and is replaced by OS updates such as service packs.

  • Even I am facing same issue. Does anybody have answer for my question?

    Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4 is a tool to allow capturing and protocol analysis of network traffic. I am using NMAPI.dll of Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4 in my application. As distribution of NMAPI.dll is not allowed so to use my application, I will have to ask users to install Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4 so that NMAPI.dll can be used by my application. But how would I know the location of NMAPI.dll in my application at runtime because its location may be different on different systems? Is there any workaround for this?
