Visual Basic Control MSWINSCK.OCX

Winsock control from Microsoft. This version,, is 54k zipped.

Download MSWINSCK.ZIP 54k

Unzip the file and save it to the C:\Windows\SYSTEM folder (SYSTEM32 folder if running Windows 2000 or XP). If an old version currently exists, temporarily rename it or move it to another folder for safe keeping. Now we'll register the control. Click on Start|Run and type:

regsvr32 mswinsck.ocx

into the box, then click OK. The text entered must be exact. It may help to copy from this page to the clipboard and paste it into the run box so there are no mistakes. Click OK. Windows will tell you it's registered, and you are on your way.
