In order to build openSSL from the source code you will need to install a couple of third party free software. In this post I describe what I did on a virgin windows pc in order to build openSSL 1.0.1c.
Sometimes you might need to set a user password although you don’t really need to. The most common reason to set one is to allow the user to connect through remote desktop. This will force you to authenticate every time you boot the machine. In order to avoid that (please make sure you do understand the security risks of doing that, I personally use this only on my virtual machines and only if I don’t care about securing my files) you can follow these simple steps.
