    In Windows xp my C program can spawn to an FTP
    task that gets a file from a remote server.

    But the same program under Windows 7 hangs!
    "...
    ftp> binary
    200 type set to I
    ftp> get info.txt
    200 PORT command successful
    "

    and never another word! What do I look for?

    Try running cmd.exe as administrator.

    That tipped me to the firewall causing this: the firewall
    would only pop to a cmd window, but not to a spawn - or so
    it seemed.

    Thanks.
