However, the process I've tested out and will discuss is a lot simpler
than compiling OpenSSL from source or shipping an installer as
I decided to try out Dean Lee's OpenSSL for Windows zip. It is a
little behind (0.9.8e rather than g), but it's not terribly old
either. Using this package makes it extremely simple to get OpenSSL
working on Windows so I think a slightly older version is OK.
I'm not sure why Thomas stated that he couldn't get the zip package to
work because it was smooth-sailing for me. Hopefully this won't be
So, after applying the patch:
1) Get the newest version of the OpenSSL for Windows zip
2) Extract to C:\OpenSSL
Only the two required DLLs are added. It works fine building an Nmap
installer via 'make' in Cygwin as well. I think this is a very good
middle ground from the previous two extremes of installing OpenSSL
from source and shipping an installer.
Please let me know what you think of this. I haven't given this
extremely thorough testing because I'd like some response before
continuing (like if the zip package doesn't work for you).
