> Forum thread by "Thraal": 2.4.3.

Bit more info: Win 7 (so this isn't XP-specific).

There are a number of reports floating around of being unable to start a client-spawned server on Windows with current 2.4 versions.

Keeping this ticket distinct from bug #22448 (which is reported against 2.5.0-beta1), since networking changed in 2.5. Root cause may turn out to be the same though.

Current versions:

Old versions (before last changes to network startup in 2.4.2, so probably irrelevant):

  • Forum thread by "alfredh": 2.4.0. WinXP. Client spawning apparently works on admin but not user account. Intermittent "bind failed: the operation completed successfully" (in German).
