You can download and install OpenSSL Windows version using these steps:

1. Go to the https://indy.fulgan.com/SSL/ Website.

2. Search and select the latest version that matches your Windows type, like openssl-1.0.2h-i386-win32.zip.

3. Download and save the selected ZIP file to a folder, like C:\local\openssl.

4. Unzip the downloaded file C:\local\openssl\openssl-1.0.2h-i386-win32.zip. You will see some new files, like:

 Directory of C:\local\openssl

05/04/2016  01:39 AM             2,318 HashInfo.txt
05/04/2016  01:39 AM         1,364,480 libeay32.dll
01/15/2014  11:38 AM             6,404 OpenSSL License.txt
05/04/2016  01:39 AM           516,608 openssl.exe
05/04/2016  01:39 AM             2,722 ReadMe.txt
05/04/2016  01:39 AM           335,872 ssleay32.dll

5. Try to run OpenSSL in a command line windows:

C:\fyicenter>\local\openssl\openssl.exe version

WARNING: can't open config file: /usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf
OpenSSL 1.0.2h  3 May 2016

Ignore the warning for now. The missing file, openssl.cnf, is not needed for most OpenSSL commands. You can provide openssl.cnf from the command line, if needed.
