When trying to run RFEM/RSTAB, the message only appears:

Sentinel HASP
Failed to create the self-socket with error 10093/WSANOTINITIALIZED.
Likely Winsock DLL is malfunctional or was unloaded while the HASP API is still in use.
This is an unrecoverable error!
Aborting...
How can I solve this?

Answer

The cause of this message is usually a defective video card driver.
After updating the driver by using the homepage of the graphics card manufacturer, the message mentioned above will no longer appear and the programs start as usual.
