    IIRC, Microsoft turned off raw socket API for "security reasons" as of Windows SP2. Their official stance was:
    "We have removed support for TCP sends over RAW sockets in SP2.
    We surveyed applications and found the only apps using this on XP were
    people writing attack tools."
    Kind of dumb if you ask me, but hey it's their OS and they can do whatever they want to it. So if the OS doesn't allow you to create raw sockets, you can't do anything about it unfortunately.
