Windows Specific Information

The most recent releases of Resin 3.0.x on Windows (.19+ for sure) are compiled against the more recent branch of OpenSSL, 0.9.8. Older releases, through .14 at least, are compiled against the specific version, 0.9.7c from gnuwin32, that's mentioned in the docs.

To set up OpenSSL in the latest releases, get the current 0.9.8 binary distribution from here. Unfortunately, you can't just extract the DLL's, so you'll have to install it. The DLL's will go into your Windows system32 directory. There should be three DLL's:

  • ssleay32.dll
  • libeay32.dll
  • libssl32.dll

You can grab those once they're extracted by the installer and put them in your resin directory, or anywhere on the path (including leaving them where the installer put them). After that, your newer release of Resin should be able to start with OpenSSL.
