10.1.00 System Generator for DSP Installer - Why do I receive the message "An error occured while installing the Microsoft Network Monitor driver (NetMon) during installation of WinPcap?"


Why do I receive the following error message during installation of System Generator for DSP and WinPcap?

"An error occurred while installing the Microsoft Network Monitor driver (NetMon) (0x0004A020). You will be able to use WinPcap on standard network adapters, but not on Dialup connections and VPNs. The installation will now continue."


This is a known issue with the WinPcap installer and can be ignored. This error message does not affect the ability to perform Ethernet Hardware Co-Simulation.

For a listing of all System Generator for DSP known issues, see (Xilinx Answer 29595).
