Winsock2.h should be included first, or IIRC some magic macro
(WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN, something like that) should be defined. This prevents
windows.h which is indirectly included by everything (for example stdio.h
and stdlib.h) to pull also winsock.h . winsock.h and winsock2.h have
conflicting definitions. This feature/bug has been like this in the Windows
SDK for ages, I do not know why it is not fixed yet (winsock.h is quite old
and very obsolete, I do not think anyone is using it now)

Typelib.h is included by mysql.h. There is no uchar on Windows, which makes
source file not compile, if my_global.h not included (e.g only mysql.h is
used) . In the last years, I keep fixing "uchar" in public headers in
different versions of MySQL, but it still pops up here and there again.
Specifically here, fix needed to be done so my changes above would work, I
removed client_priv.h dependency from async_sample.c, that was for Windows
only and commented as "For some reason, mysql.h does not work here" . Since
I knew the reason, why it does not work, I removed the comment, the
#include client_priv.h and fixed the header.
