Most or all Windows APIs, and most programs, support the forward slash as a directory separator. The exceptions are mostly the cmd.exe built-ins.

We need to see the contents of openssl.cnf. It might also help to have the CSR (req.pem). Since a CSR doesn't contain the private key (the CA should never see the private key), this is safe to share.
