Hi Gurcharan,

   I've run 3.1 on Vista, both VIC and RAT works fine with multicast.
The ExtendedVideoProducer's DVTS doesn't work though.

Looks like VLC has issues with multicast on Vista, see:

I think I had VIC and RAT working with multicast on Vista, unfortunately
I don't have a Vista machine handy to confirm it.
