What is the ws2_32.dll file?

Question

Wrote earlier about WS2_32.Dll. I found it at MS as part of W2000. Why do Spybot et al state they workwith W95 and W98 when they require a driver that did not exist before W2000? Thanks. JAP

This question was answered on September 22, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

If you are using Windows 95 and you are having trouble connecting or you are seeing this message, you will need to update your winsock2 file

Winsock 2 is a separate, add-on component not included with basic Windows 95 It is part of Windows/NT 4.0, but I believe that you must have the TCP/IP network components installed to have winsock 2 support.

Hope That answers your question...
