I have a Visual Studio 2013 solution with 2 C++ projects that implement Windows Sockets, one is the Client and the other is the Server. The Server is listening to a port and the Client asks to type something. When I type a message in the Client, it appears in the Server. I have performed this test in a Windows 8.1 PC. However, if I run this same executables in a Windows 10 PC, everything fails; what I type in the Client does not appear in the Server and the Client gets kind of frozen. Both Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 PCs have VS2013 installed. They are, in fact, 2 Windows 10 PC and 2 Windows 8.1 PCs, all of them  with VS2013 installed. I tested in all of them. Also, I have compiled in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 PCs.

I will very much appreciate any clue about how to solve this issue. It is very important and urgent to get a solution as soon as possible.

I wonder if you need the code to try it yourself.
