Configuring VirtualBox OSE to build with OpenSSL 1.1.0 on Windows

Reported by: IndyJones Owned by:

Guest type: all Host type: Windows


Currently it is not possible to configure VBox OSE to compile with OpenSSL 1.1.0 libraries on Windows. The configure.vbs script fails:

Checking for openssl...
error: Can't locate openssl. Please consult the configure.log and the build requirements.

The problem is that with OpenSSL 1.1.0 the libraries are now called libcrypto.lib and libssl.lib. However configure.vbs is still looking for libeay32.lib and ssleay32.lib.

Patch welcome.

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by IndyJones

This patch correctly detects openssl 1.1.0 library files and also correctly sets the VBOX_WITH_OPENSSL_PRE_1_1 if a pre-1.1.0 openssl installation was found.
