Ticket #101 (closed defect: invalid)

Opened 7 years ago

Last modified 4 years ago

Platform is broken on Windows 2000 (caball-install and network problems)

Reported by: jcpetruzza Owned by: refold
Priority: minor Milestone: Blue Sky
Component: Windows installer Keywords:


When I run cabal.exe on a Windows 2000 it fails with this pop-up:

cabal.exe - Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point freeaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.DLL.

This was metioned before but I couldn't find a report here. The problem will most probably go away once this bug is fixed. In the meantime I would suggest making the windows installer "XP or later only" to avoid bad user experiences.

Thanks for reporting this. Indeed, I do not test on Windows 2000. Don, can you update the website as suggested?
