> I've installed Kismet on a few different Windows machines (using the AirPcap adapter) and run it successfully. Today, tried to do the same process with an identical machine, and I keep getting the error "The Kismet client couldn't start - please check your kismet.conf." The issues leading up to this were Kismet having to create the group file and not being able to read either /usr/local/etc/ap_manuf or /usr/local/etc/client_manuf. Sounds like a permissions issue, but I never had to mess with any of that on other Windows machines.
> Any insight into what's going on? Thanks!

First thing that pops to mind is permissions, namely are you Administrator and did you install it as Administrator?
