Original title: wsastratup failed


Error 10093 Either the application has not called WEAStartup or WSAStartup faild

Hi Nagesh,


1.    When exactly do you get the error message?

2.    Were there any changes made on the computer prior to the issue?


The WSAStartup function initiates use of the Winsock DLL (Dynamic Link Library) by a process.


I would suggest you to follow these steps and reset Winsock:

a.     Click on Start.

b.    Click on All programs.

c.     Click on Accessories.

d.    Right click on Command Prompt and click Run as administrator.

e.    Type the following command at command prompt, and then press ENTER: netsh winsock reset

f.      Once you have reset the Winsock Catalog successfully, restart the computer.

g.    Check if the issue persists.


Let us know the results.
