Which version of Windows are you using?
Your log seems to show that a socket is not inherited from the parent
process to a child process, which might be possible on non WinNT
(as Win95/98/Me).  Or you might have a firewall or AntiVirus software
which is blocking the inheritance.
If so, DeleGate will not work for any usage not only for HTTPS/HTTP gateway.

I uploaded 9.6.3-pre2 at
in which I modified the socket handle of socketpair() to be marked as
inheritable by default.  It might solve your problem.

And you will need STLS="fcl" to make it HTTP/HTTPS gateway.
Also ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll are necessary to  be placed at the same
directory with dgx_x_x.exe (for example), downloaded from

The whole log of DeleGate including the one during its startup time will
be useful what is wrong.
