Miranda Portable, SSL and GTalk?

If you don't have SSL installed in Windows, Miranda is not able to connect to a SSL-only server, such as the one for GTalk -- the "Use SSL" checkbox is greyed, and a link to download OpenSSL (at http://www.slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html) is displayed.
Since we are talking about a PORTABLE setup, is there a "Portable SSL" available that could supply this need? We can't rely on host computers having SSL installed...

solution

just copy these files to the root directory of miranda (where miranda32.exe is located, _not_ mirandaportable.exe):

libeay32.dll
libssl32.dll
ssleay32.dll

google should find the files at www.dll-files.com

and it should work on every computer...

john, it could be nice, if you'll included these files i the package! Smile

(german users: look here: http://miranda-im.de/mediawiki/index.php?title=Openssl)

Edit: the same way can be used for other dependences, that are not present on every pc. so msvcr70.dll or msvcr80.dll is often uses by plugins, the "Microsoft C Runtime Library"

Apps on my Portable Device:
Miranda, Firefox, Sunbird, Thunderbird, 7-Zip, FileZilla, GIMP, OOo, Sodoku and VLC

German User, Sorry for my bad english, I do my really really best Smile

GOOD solution

Yeah, it worked fine. The only part that was a teeny bit complicated was getting the DLLs -- dll-files has just one of them. I had to install OpenSSL on my machine to get them. And then, it took me a while to be sure that it *was* working -- even after I uninstalled OpenSSL, Miranda still behaved as if I still had it. Apparently the OpenSSL uninstaller leaves stuff behind...

But now I tested it in a different machine and it worked as you said it would.

why install?

as i wrote, you'll find the files with google Smile

i.e.: http://www.google.de/search?q=libeay32.dll
and the first entry: DLL-files.com - libeay32.dll, free download
http://www.driverfiles.net/page,dll,download,93.html

and this could be done with all 3 files... and it will work Smile

Apps on my Portable Device:
Miranda, Firefox, Sunbird, Thunderbird, 7-Zip, FileZilla, GIMP, OOo, Sodoku and VLC

newer version

libssl32.dll is a newer version of ssleay.dll. Where can I find it?

EDIT: never mind. They seem to be two different files, and I found them in system32.
