Blender add-on problem

Hi,
I am trying to enable the Ni Mate add-on in Blender but I get an error message

I tried the plugin with Blender 2.79b and didn’t see any problems, so this isn’t directly related to your Blender version.

After some quick googling, it might be something in the Python installation Blender is using. Are you on a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows?

I am using 64-bit windows 10

Is your Blender 32-bit or 64-bit? You’ll want the 64-bit version, although I suppose both -should- work.

The blender is the 64-bit version. when i run the python code manually i get this error

Apologies about the delay. I didn’t notice your response here.

For some reason the socket DLL refuses to load. Could you verify if simply reinstalling Blender works? Maybe something in the DLL itself is corrupted. Other than that, I’m a bit baffled as to what causes this sort of error.

I am having the same trouble. The add-on is for 2.8 and yet i get the same error. Also, re-installing does not help.
