I'm not solving any problems. The project makes MS winsock transparent to VbScript.

Hi, I have used this with great results, thanks. But now I have a new computer with windows 7 64-bit and createobject doesn't work anymore, it gives error code 80040154. I have copied the following dlls to the same folder ieshims.dll, msvbvm60.dll, mswinsck.ocx. still no luck. Any suggestions?
