[openssl-users] libraries after the build for WIn platform

I think this depends on what version of OpenSSL you're using and whether 
you're using static or dynamic libraries, none of which you mention. 
There were changes in library names in recent releases. Try reviewing 
the various NOTES, INSTALL, and README files for whichever version of 
OpenSSL you are working with.

Note also that there are substantial API changes between major releases 
of OpenSSL; if the thing you are building expects particular names for 
the static or import library files, that suggests it probably expects a 
particular API version (not the newest one if it's expecting those 
names). If you use whatever version of OpenSSL the other library is 
expecting, it should have files with the expected names.
