WSAESOCKTNOSUPPORT error

Hello

I get this error all the time in Win95
WSAESOCKTNOSUPPORT

WSADATA WSAData;

// This will not return error on win95.

    if ((status = WSAStartup(MAKEWORD(1,1), &WSAData)) == 0)  {
         MessageBox( hWnd,"Yes","Yes", MB_OK);
    }


//This socket func.. will return error 10044.

sock = socket( AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
      if (sock == INVALID_SOCKET)
      {
            char szBuff[128];
            wsprintf( szBuff, "%d", WSAGetLastError());
            MessageBox( hWnd, szBuff, "Error", MB_OK );
            WSACleanup();
            PostQuitMessage(0);
      }

I get the error then I try to use sock.
I have ws2_32.dll and the help dll on my win95 computer, but this will not work why ?

Please help me...

This error indicates that the protocol you specified is not available.  Check your network control panel and make sure that the TCP/IP protocol is installed and bound to at least one network adapter.  The presence of ws2_32.dll is NOT an indication of an active TCP/IP protocol.

I have TCP/IP installed...

I try this program on my friends computer two ( Win95 and have Network and TCP/IP protocol installed "We use it to play game" )
And the program returned the same error.

I read an articel for just one minutes ago and he say something about using wsock32.dll instead of ws2_32.dll but how to use it WSAStatup requried ws2_32.dll..

It works fine with win98 and NT but not win95.

What library are you linking with?

Are you sure of your definitions for AF_INET and SOCK_STREAM?

I use ws2_32.lib

I think so because it works on NT and Win98.
But I see that many people have the same problem.
Maybe it's something wrong with ws2_32.dll and ws2_32.lib.
