    VS2013 Compiling with header redirection IDE complains. "Open SSL"

    Hello im trying to compile a project that uses Open SSL but i have a problem since compiler complains about this on some headers

    The files are empty and only containing this line:

    "../../crypto/md5/md5.h"

    I understood that those headers redirect to the actual file in a different path from the include folder, must work in other compilers but VS2013 complains about it.

    Im planing to work arround it like copying those files directly in the include folder or even take the time to redirect those includes to the actual file one by one but im guessing that there is a simpler way.

    The reason Im asking is cause i have no idea how to search about the solution or where are the terms.


    Thx for your time!!

    If you don't want to compile OpenSSL yourself (which is needed to create the "sdk" tree structure), then you can try compiling against a pre-built version of OpenSSL: http://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html

    Yes, it will work.
    The OpenSSL DLL's will use the VS2008 CRT internally. So your app installer will need to provide both the 2008 and 2013 redistributables. So you'll need the 2008 redistributable installed on your dev PC as well.

    I Knew i could use the dlls but the thing is that i wanted to use the static version... but in case i really need to use the dll version would be a pain in the ... to deploy a dll that will also requiere another runtime... I dont understand why microsoft releases a runtime almost every year, how do you make a standard like that only creates big headaches for us developers.

    If i need to use a dll i would rather to use dll that wont requiere aditional runtime :/
