There was a similar issue with OE10.2B and Windows 7. Maybe this is relevant for your
socket errno=22.(781)

Nevertheless, Progress 9.1E is more than 20 years old software which isn't supported on Windows 10. I doubt that it even was supported on Windows 7. I guess there is something in the Windows update that blocks Progress from spawning a server socket.

Running version 9.1E on anything is a recipe for disaster as it's ancient, obsolete, and unsupported, but running it on a modern OS is really asking for trouble.
How are you connecting your client to the server? I presume there must be some sort of command line. I presume it's the database connection that's failing? Can you connect to the database through the procedure editor? Have you got a machine that hasn't been updated that you can test to see if it really is the Win10 update causing it?

I think your link is broken, but this sounds relevant since it is related to a recent Windows 10 update: Progress KB - Windows 10 shared drive and executables error 781

I agree with you, but please don't exaggerate - Progress 9.1E is from 2004, SP4 is from 2006. 20 years ago 9.0A was released.
Still I wouldn't normaly use 9.1E on anything newer than XP/Server 2003 for production purposes. I did use it on Windows 7 to do development for our legacy clients, but starting from SP1 I couldn't install it anymore.
