OS:  Windows 98  IBM ThinkPad Model 770

1.  First, I am not sure what I may have installed to cause this problem but I defiently have one!

I can no longer run 16 bit applications such as:

Crosstalk 2.0
Mailroom  3.1  http://www.sierrasol.com
etc..    

Crosstalk gives me a "stack error"
Mailroom tell me "Microsoft Windows Winsock Version 1.1 eror" when trying to send a email.

I am looking to find out how I can correct this with having to blow away the system and rebuild everything?

Please help!!!

Open your config.sys file and put in the statement:

STACKS = 64,512

See if that helps

I tried your recommendation and it did not work.  I am pretty sure somthing must have got corrupted.  I know that the 32 bit programs like Outlook still work fine.  It is just the programs that use the Winsock 1.1.  

I did not want to mess with it as I am unexperienced so if you have any other ideas, pass them along.  

I will be happy to up the points to the person who  can help me resolve this issue.

Thanks so much!

Since you have Win98, have you considered going into system tools --> system information and system file checker?  Check the files for corruption and if need be, extract your winsock file again - perhaps it is corrupt.  This would be an easy way for an inexperienced person to check/solve the problem.

How do you extract your winsock file?  I tried doing the file cheker and it did not seem to help much.

Sometimes, going into your network properties (provided you aren't on a network) and uninstalling then reinstalling dialup adapter and TCP/IP will refresh the winsock file.  You might try that.  You could also give uninstalling/reinstalling DUN a shot, too.  Just remember to reboot the computer between uninstalling and reinstalling.

i think this might help:
i had the thought that maybe there are different versions of winsock (i program in vb and there are several different versions including beta from microsoft)
gimme your email address and ill send you mine just put it in your windows directory (c:\windows\) providing that is where you installed windows and everything should be fine...
(why do you want to run 16bit applications anyway :))

Stedan:

Thanks for you comments.  I am sorry I should have removed this question sooner.  I have recently figured out how to resolve the problem.   Apparently, I must have installed some program that remove Version 1.1 becasue I went back looking through Control/Add/Remove Programs and discoverd there was a option: Restore Original Configuration of Winsock V1.1

This resolved the problem.

There are still may 16 bit applications I use at work.

Thanks for your help and everyones help.  This is aan awesome website.
