Hi Saul,

   To ensure that we have proper version/platform/compiler
information, please make sure you fill out the appropriate problem
report form (PRF), which is in


or in


in older versions of ACE+TAO.  Make sure to include this information
when asking any questions about ACE+TAO since otherwise we have to
"guess" what version/platform/compiler/options you've using, which is
very error-prone and slows down our responsiveness.  If you don't use
the PRF, therefore, it is less likely that someone from the core
ACE+TAO developer team will be able to answer your question.
Naturally, we encourage and appreciate other members of the ACE+TAO
user community who can respond to questions that they have the answers

Please note, moreover, that the DOC groups at Washington University,
UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt University only provide "best effort"
support for non-sponsors who are using the latest release, as
described in


Therefore, please make sure you are using ACE+TAO+CIAO x.6 (i.e., ACE
5.6, TAO 1.6, and CIAO 0.6), which you can download from


under the heading: "Latest Release".  If you need more "predictable"
help or need help for earlier versions of ACE+TAO+CIAO please see


for a list of companies that will provide you with ACE+TAO+CIAO
commercial support.

Thanks very much,


>OS: Windows XP, not sure what winsock version.
>Compiler: we compile under Borland BCB 6, Borland Turbo10,
>MSVC .net2003 and MSVC .net2005; and the new addition: MinGW. We use
>all those compilers
>Contents of config.h:
>//  ACE Config.h   Borland C++ 6.0 ACE header
>#include "ace/config-win32.h"
>I have no problem with supplied examples.
>We have successfully used ACE libs under MSVC and Borland. Now we are
>trying to use them under MinGW.
>I have downloaded MinGW Developer Studio ver 2.05 We have g++.exe
>dated 9/21/04.
>I have not found a MinGW project for ACE, RMCast, nor TMCast. Does
>anyone has it ?
>This is for a comercial product.
>As a secondary issue, I get compiler warnings when compiling our own
>library (under MinGW), these warnings do not come from our source code
>(which uses ACE) but from the ACE source. I am attaching one of the
