Yes, I already tried to make those static libs myself, I'm having a lot of
problems activating
the scripts supplied by openssl. I do have perl, ( version 4) DO I need to
update it?
any how the sources of openssl are not coming with a clear context
information so I'm
not sure hoe to make the workspace for each library. The Win32/Mingw32
that you have mentioned - is it a free and user friendly?
I might change into it

Thanks anyhow,



The download for the Windows openSSL files contains only the .dll files; it
doesn't include the .libs.
The Win32/Mingw32 devel edition of curl has static and dynamic minGW link
libraries (.a files actually) for libcurl (which in turn links to libssl).
If you're looking for MSVC .lib files, you'll need to make your own, as
no-one on this list has contributed such a beast. I'm sure Daniel would be
willing to post them for others' use, if you're willing to make them.
