CRYPTO_memcmp not located in DLL LIBEAY32.dll   22 April 2015, 16:46

When starting Network Scanner 6.0.6 64-bit I always get an error message:

netscan:netscan.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point CRYPTO_memcmp could not be located in the Dynamic Link Library LIBEAY32.dll

Any ideas?

I am running 64bit windows

It looks like there is a broken global OpenSSL installation on your system. Although Network Scanner does not require OpenSSL and uses it only if it's available, there are two possible scenarios here:
  1. There is no OpenSSL. It simply disables sending secure emails and does not display any alerts.
  2. There is a global OpenSSL installation. It makes use of it for sending secure emails.

You can either remove the current global installation or download the latest version of those from the OpenSSL web-site.

Install Win64 OpenSSL v1.0.2A Light on your system and the problem should go away.

Thanks Andrew

I will investigate. I recently installed OpenVPN by downloading openvpn-install-2.3.6-I603-x86_64.exe from the OpenVPN website.
