Compiling OpenSSL on Windows (msvc)

visual_studiolpngThe present post is a recipe for building the static and dynamic OpenSSL libraries for all versions of OpenSSL on the Windows platform, viz. msvc32 and msvc64. We are using the Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 C++ compiler. In another posts we treat the mingw (Minimal GNU for Windows) toolchain. Our goal is to have in the end the following libraries (each for 32bit and 64bit that all have 32 in their name even then 64bit versions): >> >>

Undefined reference to WinMain@16 when compiling OpenSSL

The error message as given in the title occurs regularly when compiling OpenSSL. In our case the cause was always the incorrect decompressing of file links of the source tarball with a Windows zip utility. Use the GNU tar and these problems will be gone. >> >>

Compiling OpenSSL on Windows (mingw32)

mingwThe present post is a recipe for building static and dynamic OpenSSL libraries for all versions of OpenSSL on the Windows platform, viz. mingw using the gnu c++ compiler. In another posts we treat the msvc (Microsoft Visual Studio C++ compiler) toolchain. Any mingw toolchain could be used for the present purpose. However, there are quite a number of mingw distributions around that differ in a not well-documented way. As in our company we build multi-platform (Windows, Mac and Linux) applications using the Qt IDE we will use the mingw distribution (version 492-32bit) that comes with the open source Qt package (version 5.5.1 at present). Our goal is to have in the end the following 2 static libraries: >> >>

Compiling OpenSSL on a MacBook Air

mac-bookCompiling OpenSSL on a Mac used to be quite complicated. A Mac is shipped with OpenSSl, but the user/develeoper might want to have control over the version and configuration. If you follow the following steps you will get your own OpenSSLversion on your Mac. >> >>
