Many thanks Daniel & Ray for helping with this. I guess I'll need to
download libcrypto and libssl.

Is there a specific version I'd need for each of them? Obviously I
could just install the latest versions - or is there some previous
version that's preferable?

And as a suggestion (given that the libcurl DLL can't work without those
extra DLL's) would it make sense to include the crypto and ssl DLL's in
your Windows zip file? That way, people could be sure they're running
the right combination of everything.
