Or is XP simply not a feasible way to go anymore?

I installed the latest version of the AppGameKit Trial and get this error message when I try to compile/run my code:

"The procedure entry point inet_ntop could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.dll"

From what I understand WS2_32.dll handles internet protocols, and the inet_ntop procedure is not functional in Windows XP.

I've only seen one reference to this issue on the forums, but no solutions.
I am not entirely opposed to changing/updating my operating system at some point, but I was wondering if anyone has found a work-around for this problem.

If this is just a matter of file updates that would be great!

LoL..

Well I can only assume:

a) i asked a stupid question, because XP is OUT, or
b) i asked a question that's been answered many times over, or
c) wolves have eaten everyone, and/or
d) i am Donald Trumpski

Win XP has been retired by MS and is no longer receiving security updates. (Or any updates tbh)

I would not recommend using a Windows XP machine for anything anymore. Update the OS asap to keep you safe and secure.

Time is running out on windows 7 as well. XP is critically outdated at this point. Plenty of things will still work on it, but I don't think anyone is actively supporting it for anything going forward.

Thanks everyone!
I will be looking into a new gaming PC this spring. Gotta change with the times, I guess!

@Derek,

The purchased version of AppGameKit works with XP, as I asked about supporting XP sometime ago and TGC kindly
kept support for XP.

I do agree with everyone regarding updating your system, but as recent problems with windows 10 updates
are cause for concern it's not always wise.
