[openssl-users] NMAKE error

Thanks for the prompt response.  Just a little background:  I am trying to install OpenSSL on a Windows PC so I can view a server cert.

I downloaded the latest openssl version from github.

Here are the steps I performed so far:

  1.  Downloaded latest version of openssl from git to C:\Workspaces\Harmony\openssl1
  2.  Downloaded NASM
  3.  Added Test::More and Text::Template perl modules to Perl location
  4.  SET PATH=%PATH%;C:\Workspaces\Harmony\openssl1
  5.  Executed perl Configure VC-WIN64A (got makefile)
  6.  Set SRCDIR in makefile to "C:\Workspaces\ Harmony\openssl1"

Doing step #6 got me past the issues I originally logged but now I am getting "NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make '""'".

Not sure where the makefile is erroring out.  I tried to add console output to the makefile but it is erroring on the @echo lines.

Getting the following error when attempting to make:

Here's the lines from the makefile that are creating the error:
crypto\include\internal\bn_conf.h: "crypto\include\internal\bn_conf.h.in" "configdata.pm"
               "$(PERL)" "-I$(BLDDIR)" -Mconfigdata "util\dofile.pl" \
                   "-omakefile" "crypto\include\internal\bn_conf.h.in" > $@

If I remove '"crypto\include\internal\bn_conf.h.in"', it then gives me the following error:
NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make '".\Configure"'

What version of openssl?  What steps did you take prior to running nmake?
