Subject: Socket and Threads on windows

I try to use socket and threads for a receiving/sending client. My code works fine on linux but seems to block the whole program on windows ...

It looks like this:


let sock=Unix.socket Unix.PF_INET Unix.SOCK_STREAM 0;;

(* sock connection ... *)

let (ic,oc)=(Unix.in_channel_of_descr sock,Unix.out_channel_of_descr sock);;

let my_receive()=
  let d=input_value ic in
 (* data utilisation ... *)
let my_send d=
  output_value oc d;;

let run()=
 while true do

let t=Thread.create (fun()->run()) ();;

(* ... *)


Now when I try to send data with my_send, the program just block and nothing more happen ...

I want to know if it exists some issue on windows for this case.
