Great. That covers all versions of Windows my employer cares about, so

So what's the story with IPv6 on Windows?
Works fine in every version of windows since 2000, although 2000 itself
needs a kit and patching installed.
I knew that but was wondering if there was some #if magic based on OS
level defines instead. I can see why there is not, though -- that
would result in requiring an older OS to build an Apache that is
compatible with the older OS.
Are there some versions of Windows which always support it, but the
headers we use for Windows don't detect this at build time?
We don't use an autoconf-like system on Windows, so although we could
detect this at build time, it's just something which has been left as a
We bundle our own Apache builds for a number of Windows OS levels and
have customers who really want IPv6... I don't want to break anything
for the rest of the customers, though.
That's at your own risk :-)
By "break anything" I meant that it should still work despite the fact
that they're actually only using IPv4, etc -- not that this would not
uncover a bug -- which is always a risk.
