I am updating a Mysql database from a csharp application and I randomly get this error

I am using VS2005

eodbc = {"ERROR [08S01] 08S01 - WINSOCK error 10014"}

Any ideas?

It sounds like you have a problem with a pointer (aren't all C errors pointer errors?) Anyway, 10014 is an invalid pointer:

The system detected an invalid pointer address in attempting to use a pointer argument of a call. This error occurs if an application passes an invalid pointer value, or if the length of the buffer is too small. For instance, if the length of an argument, which is a sockaddr structure, is smaller than the sizeof(sockaddr).

Also, try showing the code lines that generate the error.

probally you application has lost the conection because some network interruptions. try reconnect when catching this error if possible.
