Let me first say that this problem is IMPOSSIBLE..if you figure this out you DEFINITELY are a true "GENIOUS" in all its virtues!
The problem is this:
When using the Winsock Control to have it call a remote site you will begin to notice that this running app will continue to take up more and more memory until it eats its way into virtual memory where, once there, it starts "THRASHING" your hard drive until it crashes your entire system. I had 10 instances of this app running all at once and it started "thrashing" my system 4 hours later and once i closed down another running app (it was Netscape) my entire system froze. I had to reset my computer.
Here is URL you can download the program from:
The file "winsock-src.zip" is the source file. It requires VB 5 or higher.
The file "winsock-exe.zip" is the executable version of this app. It includes OCX files and other necessary files.
There are ONLY 3 direct calls to the WINSOCK control so there isn't much i could be getting wrong here.
If ANY of you figure this out I WILL have your BABY!!
