Solved: Litecoin Client Error

I was receiving the following error when attempting to start my litecoin client today:

"An error occured while setting up the RPC port 9332 for listening: open: An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used"

I am running Windows XP 32 bit, and apparently this error has been encountered by others.  After perusing forums for a bit, I found a solution the problem.

To correct this problem, you must install IPv6 on your network connection.

Here is how you do it, straight from Microsoft's website:

1.Open Network Connections
2.Right-click any local area connection, and then click Properties.
3.Click Install.
4.In the Select Network Component Type dialog box, click Protocol, and then click Add.
5.In the Select Network Protocol dialog box, click Microsoft TCP/IP version 6, and then click OK.
6.Click Close to save changes to your network connection.
To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.

And that was all there was to it!
