Hi Everyone,
Hi Everyone, I am in the process of building the source code and was wondering if the source code has been built on a windows 10 machine using Visual Studio 2015

Hi I am in the process of building the source code using cmake and am getting the error

Could NOT find OpenSSL, try to set the path to OpenSSL root folder in the
system variable OPENSSL_ROOT_DIR (missing: OPENSSL_LIBRARIES
OPENSSL_INCLUDE_DIR)

I cannot seem to see the problem. Please could someone help :)

@cjd22 -- I use VS 2013. I recall someone saying you could use 2015 as long as you also had the 2013 components installed
that specific error would be because it can't find the openssl libraries

@cjd22 Yes, I build on a Windows 10 machine with VS 2015, but as @sethalves said, you will need the 2013 build tools
You can download them standalone from VS 2013

@sethalves
Thanks for the response. I will try again using VS 2013.
@huffman Thanks Ryan. Do you have or know of a step by step guide to build the source code. I know theres a build guide but I 'm having problems with the project up for cmake
Where are you running into issues?

@huffman Thanks for the links.I have been following the first link as how to build. It is with openssl libs. When I do a cmake build it can't find the openssl libs. I'll follow the instructions in the second link. I have been using Visual Studio 2015. I'll try Visual Studio 2013. I'll let you know how I get on

@cjd22 Yep, you will need to download those libs
@cjd22 Let us know how it goes. You should be able to build the project file after that
