Iâ€™m upgrading the components of the user provisioning system I built. Previously, I used ActiveState Perl and the UWinnipeg PPM repository to get the Net::LDAPS stack working.
This time, though, I decided I wanted to use the native architecture of my Server 2008 R2 systems. I am using the Perl64 install from ActiveState, but I have to build my own SSL libraries (and maybe roll up PPMs for the needed perl mods).
I just compiled OpenSSL for x64 (amd64), mostly following the instructions in the INSTALL.W64 and INSTALL.W32 documents. Iâ€™m blogging the step for my future reference:
- Open a VS x64 Win64 Command Prompt and navigate to the source directory
- perl Configure VC-WIN64A –prefix=c:\local\openssl
- nmake -f ms\ntdll.mak
- nmake -f ms\ntdll.mak test (all tests passed)
- nmake -f ms\ntdll.mak install
Running the openssl command succeeds:
OpenSSL 1.0.0a 1 Jun 2010
“Shining Light Productions” has been maintaining precompiled OpenSSL binaries for Windows for quite some time… 64-bit, too.
