Windows 2000 crashes with "The procedure entry point freeaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.DLL."
After installing vidalia-bundle-0.2.1.26-0.2.9.exe, upon launching it crashes, with "The procedure entry point freeaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.DLL.". My operating system is windows 2000 sp4 rollup 1 and all hotfixes.
The solution seems to be from MSDN "The freeaddrinfo function was added to the Ws2_32.dll on Windows XP and later. To execute an application using this function on earlier versions of Windows (Windows 2000, Windows NT, and Windows Me/98/95), then you must include the Ws2tcpip.h file and also include the Wspiapi.h file. When the Wspiapi.h include file is added, the freeaddrinfo function is defined to the WspiapiFreeAddrInfo inline function in the Wspiapi.h file. At runtime, the WspiapiFreeAddrInfo function is implemented in such a way that if the Ws2_32.dll or the Wship6.dll (the file containing freeaddrinfo in the IPv6 Technology Preview for Windows 2000) does not include freeaddrinfo, then a version of freeaddrinfo is implemented inline based on code in the Wspiapi.h header file. This inline code will be used on older Windows platforms that do not natively support the freeaddrinfo function.", link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms737931(VS.85).aspx .
