Call the AfxSocketInit() in your Application's InitInstance()

if (!AfxSocketInit())
{
    AfxMessageBox(IDP_SOCKETS_INIT_FAILED);
    return FALSE;
}

Thank you freewell,

That's works!
but,  when I connet to the server, which run in localhost,  it return false either. here after is my code.


int nRet;
           CSocket m_pSocket;
           if (!AfxSocketInit()){
               AfxMessageBox(IDP_SOCKETS_INIT_FAILED);
               return false;
           }
      
           if(!m_pSocket.Create()){
      AfxMessageBox("create fail");
      return FALSE;      
           }
           if(!m_pSocket.Connect(m_hostIP, m_port)){
            nRet=WSAGetLastError();
            return false;      //it returns,  nRet=10061
           }

is it because the server, which are not providing porper listening socket?

10061 WSAECONNREFUSED : No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Check your m_port value, which determines which server application you are connecting to.
