|Subject:||Installing Crypt::SSLeay 0.57 in Windows Vista Strawberry Perl|
First of all thanks for the useful package. After configuring here and there, finally I got my https support ready in my strawberry perl (I think). Think I should list down what I faced to help future installers or David to patch. In order to use Crypt::SSLeay, openSSL need to be installed first. Apparently I can't get the tarball version to work correctly (Crypt::SSLeay dmake will complain missing library). The working one was another openssl for windows, which I got from some bug report thread:(not the Light version) I used 0.9.8i. After that I used cpan to install Crypt:SSLeay, dmake ok but test failed. I opened the test code and found that it was referring to some deprecated codes (Crypt::SSLeay::CTX, etc). So I did "notest install Crypt::SSleay" and the installation was successful. Now I can work with https now, happy me!
