Re: PThreads under win95 linked to missing export


That would explain it.

I guess the more general question then is, is it intended that
pthreads works only under 98 or later?  How about NT?  Was there ever
a version for 95?  I haven't seen any docs that mention which windows
platforms it works on.  I just want to know before I release my app as
"works under windows" and then find out I have hundreds of users
sending me hate mail because it clearly doesn't work on their system.
