Yes. And ten days ago I couldn't find these files, nor can I today.
The eay files seem a complete red herring. That's for the EAY
implementation of SSL, not OpenSSL. But even with libssl-10.dll
installed it still fails.

Maybe it's a small thing - wrong folder, whatever.

I just ran out of time.

I may be a cynic... but downloading random zip files with dlls and then
bundling them into something that people can download from our site... I
don't feel comfortable with this. That's one of the reasons I cross
build under Linux - smaller likelihood of inadvertently redistributing
