Hi everyone,

Windows XP Pro
OpenSSL 0.9.8i
Ruby 1.8.6-p114

Ok, I'm going a bit OT here, but I want to see if anyone knows the

I built Ruby with VC++ 8 (cl 14). I managed to build and install
OpenSSL. I also managed to build the Ruby OpenSSL extension, after 1
minor tweak to x509.h to eliminate a macro conflict:

--- x509.orig   Thu Oct 02 11:30:10 2008
+++ x509.h      Thu Oct 02 11:47:05 2008

 /* Under Win32 these are defined in wincrypt.h */
 #undef X509_NAME
 #undef X509_CERT_PAIR
+#undef X509_EXTENSIONS

 #define X509_FILETYPE_PEM      1

But, when I try to start Rails, for example, I get this:

"The ordinal 284 could not be located in the dynamic link library

Any idea on how to solve this?
