cannot open input file "libeay32.lib"

#1 Post by imen » Sun, 2008-11-02, 09:36

I’m working with these versions :
1) Windows XP service pack 2
2) Visual 6 without the service pack 6
3) OpenSSL and I try 0.9.8a and another one precompiled OpenSSL
4) The DCMTK package is compiled with 0 error but when I compiled the interface package
I have this error message :
LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file "libeay32.lib"
Error executing link.exe.
jInterface.dll - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

Question : I want to know if this error is due to non installation of the service pack 6 or OpenSSL ?
If the problem is due to the service pack 6, can I work with new versions of visual studio (2005 or 2008) ?
I found on the web site of DICOMSCOPE, the precompiled OpenSSL which works with DCMTK 3.5.4, but the problem is not resolved.
Can you help me ?
I have an error during the execution of cmake

This error indicates that the OpenSSL library is missing.

Please also note that DICOMscope 3.5.1 is pretty old and that, therefore, current releases of the required libraries might not work (without problems). And, if I remember correctly, the name of the OpenSSL library files is different in the Windows support library package for the current DCMTK release 3.5.4.
