Re: Compiling/running Circle under win95

Had no problems compiling and running it under Win95.

About the error...I think you need to install the TCP/IP
support for Win95.  If you already have it, might want to
try configuring it.  Needs to know that there's
some semblance of a network out there.


Details of WSAEAFNOSUPPORT (10047) Address family not supported
                                  by protocol family

Briefly means "protocol family not supported"
