IPXWrapper 0.3.4 released. Workaround added for games that delete SystemRoot from the environment such as Carmageddon II. If you previously got the following error with some games, this should fix it.

"Cannot create TCP socket: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized."

Windows 98/ME Problem: error loading icmp.dll

Error description:
The ipxwrapper (and ipxconfig.exe) uses the iphlpapi.dll: GetAdaptersInfo. In turn, Iphlpapi import functions from icmp.dll. However, to run icmp, requires ORIGINAL mswsock and wsock32.

To demonstrate the bug, it is enough to put ipxconfig and wsock32 in a separate folder and run ipxconfig.

I tried to do this:
in the game folder added icmp, iphlpapi, wsock32 and mswsock. The latter two renamed wsock3_ and msesoc_, and corrected the reference to the import of all four.
ipxconfig earned :)
But ipxwrapper - no :-(
