I have an issue on a few PC's (Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional both 64 bit)not showing the adapters next to their check boxes when in the "Capture Options" menu. See graphic below.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no change in results. Its not the end of the world, but am wondering if its something with the application or my PC's.

Thanks for any input!

What displays if you select Edit -> Preferences, click Capture, and then click the "Edit..." button for "Columns"?

Yes, that was the cause. I dont understand why that would have all been unselected.

Thank you Guy Harris.

Please file a bug (and attach both screenshots), because:

  • it shouldn't be possible to make the column with the interface name and details disappear;
  • if it should be possible to make a checkbox column disappear, it should disappear, complete with the checkbox.
