> Hi all,
> We installed Windows32 Kismet (version 2008...) from CACE.
> Kismet works properly but did not store any log files (dmp/csv/...). The dir c:\Program Files\kisnet\logs is empty.
> We check the kismet.conf. It used UNIX directory notation.
> We search the forum and found one query with the same problem (even after changing the directory path to windows notation c:\Program Files\kismet....) There is no reply.
> We greatly appreciate your help to understand/make it work.

In the most recent download you can run the 'KismetConf.exe' application which has an 'Enable Kismet Disk Logging' checkbox in it. Once i did this the win32 version worked perfectly with my USB airpcap. The files were in the root directory not the 'logs' directory. A simple edit to the conf (*using the notepad2.exe*) is all that is needed to add a 'logs/' to the beginning of 'logtemplate' for the files to be stored in the directory.
