Weird Errors with Winsock and Borland Builder TClientSocket
Posted on 2001-06-30
I have created a few applications using Borland C++ Builder 5.0. I code on a Win 98 SE box running Winsock 2.2. I have no problems running my program.
Also, a lot of people who downloaded my programs have absolutely no problem running them. These programs use TClientSocket for http analysis (get a webpage and analyze it). However, quite a few people are unable to use my programs.
Although they use the identical servers, the identical urls, all they get is a bunch of Winsock Async 11001 DNS lookup failures, and Winsock 10049 (Socket already in use) errors. They are using the correct settings, its not a question of their settings.
I asked them to check their OS/dlls, they are also running Win98SE with Winsock 2.2. They are not running the program from behind a firewall which performs NAT. Other normal Winsock programs run fine.
Any idea WHY this could be happening ? Its very frustrating.
