10106 is WSAEPROVIDERFAILEDINIT

It's defined in WINSOCK2.H.  The table at:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/psdk/psdkref/errlist_9usz.htm

says:

10106

The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.  

WSAEPROVIDERFAILEDINIT

I can only speculate that the ATM provider on this computer is either not installed or is installed but not configured properly.
