According to the information in ref. documentation indicated by the customer "The issue occurs 
because the openssl.exe fails with the following error: The application was unable to start correctly."

"The following 32-bit DLLs do not exist in the syswow64 directory: 
mfc100.dll, mfc100u.dll, msvcr100.dll, and msvcp100.dll"
