Failure To Start WinSock

Savant was unable to initialize the Microsoft Windows TCP/IP service. Web serving requires the use of a TCP/IP service, so Savant shuts down.

This error is caused by the absence of a valid TCP/IP service or a lack of memory.

To solve the problem, try these steps:

  1. Restart your computer to correct a possible TCP/IP fault.
  2. Verify that you have enough available memory for Savant to operate. Savant can run on a system with as little as 4 megabytes of RAM, but at least 12 megabytes is recommended.
  3. Verify that you have a recent version of WinSock installed on your computer. The latest release is available free from Microsoft at
  4. Re-install your TCP/IP implementation in the Network dialog of the Control Panel to correct a possibly corrupted TCP/IP implementation.
