Walter Fröhlich Licensing & Authorization RFEM RSTAB

When attempting to start RSTAB / RFEM, only the message appears:
Sentinel HASP
Failed to create the self-socket with error 10093 / WSANOTINITIALIZED.
Likely Winsock DLL is malfunctional or wasted meanwhile HASP API is still in use.
This is an unrecoverable error!
Aborting ...
How can I solve this?


The cause of this message is usually a bad video card driver.
After updating the driver on the home page of the graphics card manufacturer, the message should no longer appear and start the programs as usual.
