Hey Simon,

It's unclear as it's still mentioned that it's only supported if UNIX 
Domain sockets are supported:

"The inter-process transport is currently only implemented on operating 
systems that provide UNIX domain sockets."

http://api.zeromq.org/master:zmq-ipc
https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq/blob/master/doc/zmq_ipc.txt

It's probably not widely known that recent windows supports UNIX Domain 
sockets. But it's good to know it's working!

Rg,

Arnaud
