NT 3.5 support will require an external definition as if *winsock2.h* or *
winsock.h* must be included before windows.h it is not possible to detect
the Windows version.  This also obsoletes the _WINSOCKAPI_ hack as shown in
Microsoft examples and in* windows.hpp*:

#ifndef _WINSOCKAPI_
#define _WINSOCKAPI_   /* Prevent inclusion of winsock.h in windows.h */
#include <windows.h>
