Using Windows Sockets Under Win32s and WOW

Q105757



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Win32s versions 1.1, 1.2





SUMMARY

Win32s versions 1.1 and later provide a thunking layer for Windows Sockets. A 16-bit Windows Sockets 1.1 package must be installed on the Windows machine. Otherwise, the system will report that WINSOCK.DLL was not found. Windows NT provides a versions 1.0- and 1.1-compliant WOW (Windows on Win32) thunking layer.



MORE INFORMATION

There are a number of vendors that sell Windows Sockets packages. Windows Sockets support is available from Microsoft for LAN Manager version 2.2 for MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 at no additional cost. Similar support is also being shipped in "Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows For Workgroups" and the "Microsoft Network Client."

If you have LAN Manager with Microsoft TCP/IP, you can pick up everything you need from ftp.microsoft.com. Or, call Microsoft Sales at (800) 426- 9400.
