1. What Operating System are you using?
2. Try reinstalling the software.
3. Do you have TVU installed in your system? It might have a conflict with Sopcast. Uninstall them both, then do a clean install of Sopcast.
4. Did you install any Antivirus software called, “Spyware Doctor”? It is known to have a conflict on Sopcast. Uninstall this software.
5. If you also installed an Antivirus called “Bit Defender”, it has a .dll file called sockspy.dll which will cause Sopcast to crash. Locate it on your system32 folder. Go to My Computer and open C Drive (Your main drive whatever letter it is) then go to Windows, open system32 folder, find sockspy.dll and rename it to sockspy.bkp.
Hopefully that solves everything.

Hello David,

What you are getting could be a conflict between TVU and Sopcast. Check if all of them close when you start them. Did you remove them without closing everything on your PC, uninstalling, removing files manually, and then installing again, for that could be the cause of the issue?

Other possible causes to that problem could be the following:

  • TCP connection limitation – you will need to try and enlarge limitation.
  • It could be incorrectly injected Winsock LSP, for instance Internet Download Manager with advanced integration enabled blocks TCP communications. You will need to clear the suspicious LSPs by Internet security tools or go ahead and disable related software.
