 Check that your ''​C:​\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG.NT''​ file does NOT include Microsoft'​s ''​ANSI.SYS''​ console driver. Use of this ''​ANSI.SYS''​ driver defeats the interception of console output from some 16-bit console I/O programs. Check that your ''​C:​\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG.NT''​ file does NOT include Microsoft'​s ''​ANSI.SYS''​ console driver.

 +Why do I get the error message ''​!ERROR 11001 calling getaddrinfo() on ::''​ when running Synchronet v3.17 on Windows XP?
 +
 +:!: ** Answer:**\\
 +Synchronet v3.17 defaults to assuming that your operating system supports IPv6. Windows XP does not support IPv6 by default (only IPv4). You can either install IPv6 services on Windows XP (e.g. using the command-line:​ ''​[[https://​support.microsoft.com/​en-us/​kb/​2478747|netsh int ipv6 install]]''​) or set the ''​Interface''​ key values in your ''​[[config:​sbbs.ini]]''​ file to exclude the IPv6 //​all-interfaces//​ address: ''::''​.
