Hi all,

Ok, so there is no Netmon “4.0” beta.  To help customers find the new tool that replaces “Netmon”, I used the catchy title.

Our Product group has been working on a replacement for the Microsoft Network Monitor (Netmon) 3.4.

Netmon is being retired and the new tool is called the Microsoft Message Analyzer.

Message Analyzer beta 3 is currently available for download from our Microsoft Connect beta website.

Under “Search Products accepting bugs or suggestions”

Type “Message Analyzer” and click on Search.

Click on “Join” next to “Message Analyzer and Network Monitor”

You will get a message similar to the one above.

Click on “Download”

Select the version that you need x86 or x64 and click on it.
