Error Installation with EE
Hi, I am a new user.
I have a problem, open the .exe EE, a new window appears that says '' No entry point of the procedure inet_pton in the dynamic link library is WS2_32.dll '' and accept him, closes .
I wondered if I could help with this problem. By the way my pc is Windows XP SP3. Sorry for my bad english.

Hi, as this DLL is the Windows Sockets API library I'm guessing perhaps your version is somewhat out of date and doesn't contain that procedure. You might want to see if there is a later version available.

EE networking was last updated (IPv6 support, etc.) but I'm not sure if that's backwards compatible with XP.

Many thanks for reporting the issue.

I've found this post which provides a replacement for these functions on Windows:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13731...r-inetpton

I'll add this, and hopefully it will work for next release.
