New issue 159 by andy.quigley: Getting memcached.exe to run on Win32 older
than XP (2000,NT, etc..)
http://code.google.com/p/memcached/issues/detail?id=159

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Execution of memcached.exe


What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Error message on execution:
The procedure entry point freeaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic
link library WS2_32.DLL.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
memcached.exe from memcached-1.4.5-x86.zip, downloaded from northscale.com
Running on Windows 2000, 5.00.2195, Service Pack 4

Please provide any additional information below.
The following URL explains how another project dealt with a similar error:

http://gobby.0x539.de/trac/ticket/425

Basically, there are two header files, Ws2tcpip.h and Wspiapi.h, which must
be included to implement the 'freeaddrinfo' function for older versions of
Windows.
Updates:
Status: Invalid

Sorry, please speak with northscale. (now membase). I don't think you'll
have much luck making it work on something so old though.
