component 'MSWINSCK.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered

IT means winsock is not registered on your computer, try registering it, if that doesnt work, you didnt pay for it and cant use it (that would be the case for stuff like learning edition)

with winsock you only have to pay for developing not using, other computers should not have problems, as long as winsock is in the same place as you exe (you must give them winsock.ocx though)
