Error Message:

application : Windows Sockets initialization failed: text


This error can occur if the Wsock32.dll or Winsock.dll file is missing, is damaged, or has been replaced by a third-party protocol stack's sockets interface.

User Action:

Remove and reinstall the TCP/IP protocol. If you continue to get this message, contact the vendor of the third party protocol stack's interface and verify that the stack is compatible with the Wsock.dll or Winsock.dll.
