We are having an issue with the patch, its being worked on and we are trying to resolve it quickly since this is the fastest and most efficient solution for fixing your WinMX.
For now try these things to see if it fixes it.
One is to install the 3.54 beta 4 and run the Dll patch... you can find the WinMX beta 4 here:
Then get this updated patch at:
http://w w w.winmxgroup.com/ws2_32.dll as of 11:30pm GMT time
Once these are placed in your C:\Program Files\WinMX folder then restart WinMX and see if this helps..
If you continue to have a crashing problem please use this updated Hosts file from here: https://www.winmxorld.com/files/winmxworld_hosts.zip
If you decide to use this hosts file you will need to make a folder to store your DLL file in, this can be inside the WinMX folder if you like. Then install the go to
C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc there you will need to rename your original hosts file to 'Original hosts' then unzip this file to that folder.
Do a dns flush by going to
Start > Run type 'cmd'
Then in the dos box type 'ipconfig /flushdns' then restart your WinMX
