Fresh installation of CoreUtils + OpenSSL. Windows 7. Open the command prompt, and having prvate.pem file (with correct RSA key), run the following command:
C:>openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -sha1 -days 365 -key prvate.pem > prvate_self.cer
This command yields the following error:
Unable to load config info from /usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf

Although there is a workaround for that (define the -config), it would be nice if the tool would guess the openssl.cnf location in the installation folder.
