View Full Version : Problem installing Winsock

07-26-2013, 11:00 AM
Hi there,
I'm having problems installing the Winsock Control as part of my application. The version that I have on the development computer is MSWINSCK.ocx version I have selected Microsoft Winsock Control 6.0 on the Installshield Express Redistributables screen (there is no other entry on that screen for the Winsock control).

What happens is that if there is an existing version of MSWinsck on the target machine it stays there. If there is no MSWinsck on there the installer adds version which is really old!

I am unsure if the redistributables screen is the correct way to specify this product. If it is then I can't find a way to make it use the version of this ocx which is on the development machine.

This is a real problem because version is really buggy and the application is failing on the target machine because of it.

All help very gratefully received.

Many thanks
