Please reply to the support list and not to me directly.

It looks like the patched third party build that you're using is known
to not have Bonjour support.

You probably can grab the libbonjour.dll from the plugins directory of
the official 2.10.1 version and put it in the plugins directory of the
installed third party version to add bonjour support to that version.

It's worth noting that we can't provide much support for any issues
you run into using third party builds.
