Windows XP Support

Microsoft has announced the end of support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014 and will no longer release updates for the operating system, including security related updates. Although it has been our policy to discontinue support for a platform that is no longer supported by Microsoft, we have decided to continue to provide technical support for Windows XP during this transition period.

SocketTools 8.0 Build 8010

SocketTools 8.0 includes new FTP and HTTP server components, new features and functionality and native support for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms. SocketTools also includes support for IPv4 and IPv6 network connections, and all editions include support for secure connections using SSL/TLS and SSH. For those developers who have used earlier versions of SocketTools, we've also consolidated the SocketTools editions to simplify the upgrade process. There are three SocketTools Editions:

  • SocketTools .NET Edition
    The SocketTools .NET Edition includes managed components that are supported on both x86 and x64 platforms, and can be used with Visual Studio .NET 2003 through Visual Studio 2013, as well as any other development tool that supports the .NET Framework on the Windows platform. The SocketTools .NET classes offer a high level interface that makes it easy to add Internet functionality to your software.

  • SocketTools Library Edition
    The SocketTools Library Edition includes native 32-bit and 64-bit dynamic link libraries (DLLs) that can be used with most programming languages. This edition is ideal for those developers who are using C/C++ or prefer working with an API rather than a higher-level component.

Customers who own an earlier version of SocketTools are eligible to upgrade to the current version, regardless if they owned a standard or secure edition of the product. Those who have purchased either the Visual Edition or Scripting Edition are entitled to upgrade to the new ActiveX Edition. We've also made it simple for customers to switch to a different edition, if they choose. For example, if you currently own the SocketTools Library Edition and want to switch to the SocketTools 8.0 .NET Edition, you can do that easily at a reduced price.
