I'm away from that machine for now, but I'll try to get to it later tonight. For starters, you have to have a CygWin install. Kismet is going to look for files in CygWin's directories. There are also temp files created in \Home when Kismet is run. I changed the config file to use my Garmin serial GPS instead of GPSD. Most of the other adjustments were to the paths for the OUI database and plugins.

The included DLLs from CACE are not cutting it for me. I already tried a fresh install of CACE's driver, CygWin, and the Kismet install from CACE's website. I can tweak the config file to get Kismet to run and I can further tweak it for the GPS to work too, but I have not been able to get any logs to save.

All of the documentation is written for older builds. I get a few minor complaints during configuration, but I have not been able to execute make or make build without errors.
