Please look at https://github.com/openssl/openssl/pull/5704 and see if it fixes the issues.

    Building the shared libraries (version 1.1.1 pre 3) for Windows with 
    Visual Studio, targets VC-WIN32 or VC-WIN64A, result in DLLs with 
    version information with outdated copyright date, i.e. "Copyright 
    1998-2016 The OpenSSL Authors. All rights reserved", and the file 
    description as "OpenSSL application" instead of "OpenSSL shared library".
    The version information resource file seems to be generated by the 
    script "util\mkrc.pl", that indeed has this old copyright date 
    hardcoded, and the logic that selects the file description that seems to 
    expect a call with a file extension (i.e. mkrc.pl libcrypto.dll, mkrc.pl 
    openssl.exe, ...), but the build.info file is not specifying any file 
    extension to these calls.
    Also, why the openssl.exe doesn't include version information?
