The ‘Napatech Release LOG’ build of WinPcap-NT DLLs generates a log file named winpcap_debug.txt in the current working directory. The log file contains WinPcap debug, warning, and error messages. In the WinPcap source code solution, this is the ‘Napatech Release LOG’ configuration.

The log file will not be cleaned up automatically and will grow continuously with application usage. Delete the log file manually from time to time to save hard drive space.

For normal operation without logging, use the ‘Napatech Release’ build, which is installed by default. In the WinPcap source code solution, this is the ‘Napatech Release’ configuration.
