@CyclopsCaveman well, try to set the path to OpenSSL root folder in system variable OPENSSL_ROOT_DIR

@CyclopsCaveman just reading that you're using cygwin so like, search for "system environment variables" in windows to find the control panel, click environment variables... and make a new system variable called OPENSSL_ROOT_DIR with the path you've installed OpenSSL to

@doe does it need to be the exact place or can i just point it at the cygwin directory?

@doe ok so i set it to C:\cygwin64\bin which is i think where the openssl installation is but i'm still getting the same error so i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong

@CyclopsCaveman do u have to use cygwin? even WSL would probably be easier

@bp i mean i suppose i could but this is the last step before putting together profanity


@CyclopsCaveman good luck!
also i'm curious why you're going with OTR instead of OMEMO?
