Hello,

Having a very strange problem.  The particular client PC had many viruses on it.  I have cleaned all of the viruses.

When starting up the application (in a nthost/ntslave fashion) I will get an error that says that Providex has stopped working.  When I click on the details of the error, the fault module name is wsock32.dll_unloaded.

If I start up a Windx telnet session to the server, the application will run without any issues. 

I have tried running netsh winsock reset catalog to no avail.

Windx 6.20.5.0.

Ideas?

Thanks,
Sam

Version 6 (circa 2005) is no longer supported and had a problem with some versions of winsock that had been resolved in later releases.
