CACE was no help in the matter. CACE Tech Support said to check here, even though the only place I see the download hosted is their website and it is included on their installation CD with AirPcap NX. I also want to get Kismet working, because WireShark does not hop channels and has no provision for GPS information. Has anybody else had logging issues with XP or other versions of Windows?
