[zeromq-dev] Building & using ZeroMQ with Visual Studio

Hi All,

Anyone out there successfully building/using ZeroMQ under Windows (MSVC)?

I'm trying to build/use the current master in GitHub (
https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq) which has Visual Studio projects as well
as CMake files. I've built the CMake project (after fixing an issue in the
MSVC specific stuff - https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq/issues/1517) which
also builds all the tests but the tests fail the same way my simple test
program does.

The first call to WinSock select() always results in WSAENOTSOCK and the
app bails. I've now tried this on a 64bit Win7 and Win8 machines with both
VS2010 and VS2013 for debug and release builds with no luck :(

I get similar aborts when trying to build against the pre-built binaries on
the ZeroMQ site or building my own with the included Visual Studio project
files included in the repository.

Maybe I'm missing something obvious but any help would be great.
