In my grandson's Win 95 when he tries to play Backyard Hockey the message reads "A required.dll file,WS2-32.dll,was not found. One of the library files needed to run this application cannot be found.
Can anyone explain this error to me?

Hi Arches, Welcome to TSG !!
It seems as though the game is looking for winsock2. If you have a old version of win95 go here for the update!! My question is why is it trying to get online?? Are you playing this online or trying too?

Windows Sockets.An implementation of a socket for Microsoft Windows.Winsock provides an interface between Windows applications and TCP/IP, and is used to make network connections.Winsock is built into Windows 95, and there are versions for other operating systems.

My grandson's computer is not connected to the web and so I cannot even upgrade it. That may be the problem. He uses it mostly for games. He is only 9. Before long they will have to update him to a new computer.

Thanks for your help.
