Using libcurl with subdomains (visual studio)

Hi all,

Having a bit of trouble using libcurl in visual studio, and wondered if there was anything obvious I have missed.

I have a website that I can read perfectly using the cmd prompt and curl exe, but when using libcurl in visual studio I get the following:

            Couldn't resolve host name (error code 6)

The address is a subdomain of an academic website:<>. Interestingly enough, the main university website<> works using both libcurl and the curl standalone exe.

Could this be a misconfiguration of libcurl or something?

Thanks in advance,
