Spread tries to bind a socket to a broadcast address to receive broadcast packets within a segment. It is needed for UNIX systems, but it is not allowed on Windows systems, WinSock error 10049 (WSAEADDRNOTAVAIL) is occured during startup. The error occured both in 3.17.3 release and in 4.0.0 release candidate 2.
I think it is possible to just enclose appropriate code in Net_init routine to #ifndef ARCH_PC_WIN95/#endif. Hope the problem will be solved in 4.0.0 release.

Best regards,
