I do not see a reason for that. And I do not have Win7 yet, so I cannot test it myself. Will see once I have a copy of Win7.
Actually this issue appears with KiTTY, too.
Is there any new knowledge regarding this issue?
Maybe a hint:

Namespace Service Provide changes in Vista
Windows Desktop Development
Windows Desktop SDK
I have a NSP that runs fine on XP. But I am now testing it on Vista SP1 and observing a behaviour which is not documented anywhere.
My NSP makes gethostbyname fail for ping, putty or IE. But if I test it with a test app written in VS2008, it works fine.
I checked that when I run my test app, I get flags as 0x210 and protocol as 2 in NSPLookupServiceBegin,
. Whereas when I run putty or ping, I get 0x300110 in flags and protocol as 0, which then result in failure of gethostbyname.
Putty reports: gethostbyname failed : unknown error.
Could you please help me how you resolved your errors?
I can dump the structures that I return if you need.
