Error Message:

WINSOCK Error: No buffer space is supported.

Explanation:

An operation on a socket or pipe was not performed because the system lacked sufficient buffer space or because a queue was full. WinSock was unable to allocate additional memory to accommodate the function request. This error indicates a shortage of resources on your computer. It can occur if you are trying to run too many applications (of any kind) simultaneously on your computer. If this error tends to occur when you run certain applications, it might indicate that the applications do not properly return system resources (such as memory). It might also indicate that you are not closing the applications correctly. If this error persists, exit Windows or reboot your computer to remedy the problem.

User Action:

Try closing unneeded applications. If you continue to get this message, exit Windows 2000 and restart your computer.
