Winsock Kernel (WSK) is a kernel-mode Network Programming Interface (NPI). With WSK, kernel-mode software modules can perform network I/O operations using the same socket programming concepts that are supported by user-mode Winsock2. The WSK NPI supports familiar socket operations such as socket creation, binding, connection establishment, and data transfers (send and receive). However, while the WSK NPI supports most of the same socket programming concepts as user-mode Winsock2, it is a completely new and different interface with unique characteristics such as asynchronous I/O that uses IRPs and event callbacks to enhance performance.

Kernel-mode network modules targeted for Windows Vista and later versions of Microsoft Windows should use WSK instead of TDI because WSK provides improved performance and easier programming. Filter drivers should implement the Windows Filtering Platform on Windows Vista, and TDI clients should implement WSK.

Note TDI will not be supported in Microsoft Windows versions after Windows Vista. Use Windows Filtering Platform or Winsock Kernel instead.

Methods to Fix the Socket.dll Errorslink

ATTENTION! Before beginning the installation of the Socket.dll library, you must download the library. If you don't know how to download the library or if you are having a problem while downloading, you can look at our download guide a few lines above.

Method 1: Installing the Socket.dll Library to the Windows System Directorylink

  1. The file you will download is a compressed file with the '.zip' extension. You cannot directly install the '.zip' file. Because of this, first, double-click this file and open the file. You will see the library named 'Socket.dll' in the window that opens. Drag this library to the desktop with the left mouse button. This is the library you need.
  2. Copy the 'Socket.dll' library file you extracted.
  3. Paste the dynamic link library you copied into the 'C:WindowsSystem32' directory.
  4. If your system is 64 Bit, copy the 'Socket.dll' library and paste it into 'C:WindowssysWOW64' directory.
    NOTE! On 64 Bit systems, you must copy the dynamic link library to both the 'sysWOW64' and 'System32' directories. In other words, both directories need the 'Socket.dll' library.
  5. In order to run the Command Line as an administrator, complete the following steps.
    NOTE! In this explanation, we ran the Command Line on Windows 10. If you are using one of the Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP operating systems, you can use the same methods to run the Command Line as an administrator. Even though the pictures are taken from Windows 10, the processes are similar.
    1. First, open the Start Menu and before clicking anywhere, type 'cmd' but do not press Enter.
    2. When you see the 'Command Line' option among the search results, hit the 'CTRL' + 'SHIFT' + 'ENTER' keys on your keyboard.
    3. A window will pop up asking, 'Do you want to run this process?'. Confirm it by clicking to 'Yes' button.
  6. Paste the command below into the Command Line window that opens up and press Enter key. This command will delete the problematic registry of the Socket.dll library (Nothing will happen to the library we pasted in the System32 directory, it just deletes the registry from the Windows Registry Editor. The library we pasted in the System32 directory will not be damaged).
    %windir%System32regsvr32.exe /u Socket.dll
  7. If the Windows you use has 64 Bit architecture, after running the command above, you must run the command below. This command will clean the broken registry of the Socket.dll library from the 64 Bit architecture (The Cleaning process is only with registries in the Windows Registry Editor. In other words, the dynamic link library that we pasted into the SysWoW64 directory will stay as it is).
    %windir%SysWoW64regsvr32.exe /u Socket.dll
  8. We need to make a clean registry for the dll library's registry that we deleted from Regedit (Windows Registry Editor). In order to accomplish this, copy and paste the command below into the Command Line and press Enter key.
    %windir%System32regsvr32.exe /i Socket.dll
  9. If you are using a Windows with 64 Bit architecture, after running the previous command, you need to run the command below. By running this command, we will have created a clean registry for the Socket.dll library (We deleted the damaged registry with the previous command).
    %windir%SysWoW64regsvr32.exe /i Socket.dll
  10. If you did the processes in full, the installation should have finished successfully. If you received an error from the command line, you don't need to be anxious. Even if the Socket.dll library was installed successfully, you can still receive error messages like these due to some incompatibilities. In order to test whether your dll issue was fixed or not, try running the program giving the error message again. If the error is continuing, try the 2nd Method to fix this issue.

  3. Copy the Socket.dll library.
  4. Paste the dynamic link library you copied into the program's installation directory that we just opened.
  5. When the dynamic link library is moved to the program installation directory, it means that the process is completed.
