Is it possible to install OneAgent without installing the WinPcap component? Alternatively, is there a way to silently remove WinPcap after OneAgent installation?
I understand the impact of not having WinPcap installed, so not looking to debate that ;-)

I found these internal notes that might help:
"first disable network traffic monitoring (Settings->Monitoring->Monitored technologies->Network traffic switch off), disable autoupdates (because winpcap will be installed again) and then uninstall winpcap (Control Panel -> uninstall section -> OneAgent Winpcap 4.1.3 entry)"
"Smartscape connections should be still visible. they will lost network metrics - traffic per process, responsiveness, connectivity"
Also, we are actively working to replace winpcap with a better solution and it appears that npcap is the most likely: https://nmap.org/npcap/. But there is no ETA or anything for this AFAIK.
