After building a first prototype of Winx64 version I just saw that the .pid and .err files always have the name mysql.

In file mysqld.cc function main() calls gethostbyname() via function init_common_variables without calling WSAStartup before. WSAStartup is called later in function server_init.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Remove WSAStartup from server_init function and add it on top of main function.
