    Question Minecraft Not Working


    Today I noticed that my Minecraft game would no longer load, I uninstalled Java and reinstalled, uninstalled and reinstalled Minecraft and restarted the computer. Nothing has worked. This is the error I get, I've tried to reinstall Java again and now I get Error 1603 from the Java Installer.

    Minecraft gives me SocketException: Unrecognized Windows Sockets error: 10106:create

    Also, I realize the current MC launcher does not require Java, but that did not work for me so I used the Java version (under All Platforms at which worked for me a few days ago.

    What's wrong and is there any way to fix this?

    Default Re: Minecraft Not Working

    I would recommend you check out any mailing lists or help sites associated with the Minecraft application. The location from which you downloaded it might be a good start.

    Here is one site I found:

    "SocketException: Unrecognized Windows Sockets error: 10106: create" - Unmodified Minecraft Client Support - Support - Minecraft Forum - Minecraft Forum

    The suggestion was to do the following:

    Open CMD and run the command netsh winsock reset
