Question - Update OpenSSL Libraries

  • Algol

    Thank you very much for providing such a great application.

    My question is about updating the OpenSSL libraries that come with XCA

    XCA 0.9.0 shows OpenSSL 1.0.0a in the about dialog. If I wanted to update
    to the most recent version of OpenSSL is it just a matter of replacing the old
    dll with the new one? Or do I need to recompile the entire application with
    the new version of OpenSSL?

    Thank you for your help

    Since OpenSSL 1.0.0, they promised to keep the libs binary compatible. I never tried it, but replacing the "libeay32.dll"
    should work.

    Please note:
    The OpenSSL Version number shown in XCA is compiled in and will not change when replacing the "libeay32.dll"
    I will fix this in the next version of XCA.

    I tried this with the latest "libeay32.dll" but it still shows the version that was included with the build. Is this still compiled in?

    Best regards
