Is there a way to get more info when you encounter CURLE_FAILED_INIT

Im fairly new to libcurl, but I have managed to get it compiled and successful post to a URL using VS2013 (compiled using: nmake /f mode=dll VC=12 in the WINBUILD folder), and Im now trying to get the same code to work in VS2010 (compiled using: nmake /f mode=dll VC=10 in the WINBUILD folder) however whenever I run curl_easy_perform I get the return code CURLE_FAILED_INIT.

Im having difficulty getting more information as to what I am missing or doing wrong. Is there a way I get debug or get more info? I'm very baffled as to why one works in VS2013 but fails in VS2010.

Thank you.
