I'm running an application to fetch downloads from a web server and I need to be able to run it on Windows 95. When I try to run there I get warnings about missing dll's for Winsock 2. Is there a way to get libcurl to work with previous versions of Winsock or am I locked with Winsock 2. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Look into easy.c
static CURLcode win32_init(void);

You will find the line
wVersionRequested = MAKEWORD(2, 0);

This is what you have to change
