Fix LSP Issues For Vista: 64 Bit

It is just amazing to me how popular 64 bit operating systems have become lately.  It can cause LSP problems with Vista and 64 bit Windows Socket APIs.  Obviously, when you want to install LSP on a 64 bit operating system, you will need to install a 64 bit LSP.  Even when running on a 64 bit operating system, any 32 bit application will load both the DLLs and LSP in 32 bit.  Therefore, you must first install the 32 bit LSP.

When you are running a 64 bit application, it will load the DLLs and LSP in 64 bit.  Both (32 & 64) LSP stacks are kept and used by the 64 bit operating system – so you are going to need both 32 & 64 installers.  Remember to always install the 32 bit LSP first before the 64 bit LSP.

Hopefully, this will help you to fix LSP issues for Vista.
