so maybe, since I'm illiterate to perl, you can help me out on that.
The first thing to do on a window platform, according to openssl install
file is to
run -
perl Configure VC-WIN32
I get -
Can't open perl script "Configure": No such file or directory

although I run it from the same dir. I added it to the path, not that is
very logical...
