If you have OpenSSL for Windows installed, you can run OpenSSL commands in two ways:

1. Run a single OpenSSL command at the Windows command prompt by entering "openssl <command>" together. The following example runs a single "version" command:

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

2. Run multiple OpenSSL commands at the OpenSSL command prompt, by starting "openssl" first. The following example runs 3 commands, "version", "rand 1", and "exit":

C:\fyicenter>\local\openssl\openssl.exe
WARNING: can't open config file: /usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf

OpenSSL> version
OpenSSL 1.0.2h  3 May 2016
OpenSSL> rand -hex 1
e3
OpenSSL> exit
