Compiling PicoTLS with Visual Studio 2017
The source contains a Visual Studio 2017 solution (picotls/picotlsvs/picotlsvs.sln) which itself contains 5 projects:
Three libraries, picotls.lib and its dependencies cifra.lib and uecc.lib;
A test project, testopenssl.exe, which will run on a console and execute the OpenSSL tests;
And, an example project, picotlsvs.exe, which will perform a TLS exchange in memory, and demonstrate how to use PicoTLS in windows.
The code has a dependency on OpenSSL. When building the 32 bit projects (WIN32) it expects to find:
OpenSSL header files under $(OPENSSLDIR)\include
OpenSSL library libcrypto.lib under $(OPENSSLDIR)
When building the 64 bits projects (X64), it expects to find:
OpenSSL header files under $(OPENSSL64DIR)\include
OpenSSL library libcrypto.lib under $(OPENSSL64DIR)
You will need also to copy libcrypto.dll to the library that contains your executable, or to otherwise register that library. Be sure to copy the 32 bit library or 64 bit library, depending on which type of project you build.
Only two configurations are tested: “X86 Debug” and “X86 Release”. The X64 configurations will compile, but are not tested yet.
Feel free to provide feedback and contribute.
