> Thank you for the tip. Taking a look at the config.log, there were lots of error messages (shown below). The airpcap devpack files are unmodified (v4.1.1.1838). Could it be a problem with cygwin's configuration? Cygwin's version is:

There's your problem. Why it happens I have no idea - I dont' have a win7 instance anywhere and haven't looked at cygwin in a long time.

Make sure you have gcc/g++ and the dev headers installed. Might try contacting CACE about that and see if they know what cygwin version you need to compile with.
