    Hello,

    Since I installed the latest version (2.2), the manufacturer information has completely disappeared from the scan results.

    When I was using v1.1, a manufacturer name would show for some of the hosts, based on the first digits of the MAC address, I guess.

    Is it normal ?

    Thx.

    It is not normal.
    Both MAC Scanner v1.1 and v2.2 have the column Manufacturer and display manufacturer information on it.

    The column is still there, all right, but completely empty.
    Is it a bug ? Would you correct it ?

    Thx

    It is not a bug.
    Please make sure you have the file "oui.dat" under C:\Program Files\Colasoft Capsa 7 Enterprise Edition\data.
    The missing of that file will cause the empty of the column Manufacturer.

    If you don't have such a file, please remove the application first and then install it again.

    The file OUI.dat is in the main folder, so I created a folder named data and placed a copy of the file into it, and it works now.

    Maybe there's a twist in the installation package.

    Thanks.:)
