Any feedback or enhancements are welcome!!!

Download these and put them in your windows/system32 directory. Or in the same directory as the plugin if you don't want to pollute you windows installation.

Funny that your NT system is missing Winsock 2... It's been a native feature since NT 4, unless something deleted it.

requested dll here is mscvP71.dll
pretty strange...
anyway, with the plugin in the component folder, foobar2000 doesn't launch

Very strange, I searched in my computer and can't find that dll anywhere.

Hi! I have some problems with changing the playback order. When I use SetShuffle to false, foobar goes to Default, which is OK
But I cannot get it to go back to Shuffle (Random).

Sometimes when you hear a nice track, you want to set the shuffle OFF to hear some more tracks of that album, but then after a while you may want to set shuffle back ON. But that does not seem to work.

I have tried
?cmd=SetShuffle&param1=true and

but I only get


in return, but the playback order does not change...

Am using FB 0.8.3 and your plugin 0.2

Any help is greatly appreciated!
