OpenSSL installs but will not run

Hi!
I installed OpenSSL on a Windows 2003 Server, but when I type a OpenSSL statement at the command prompt it says it is an unrecognized command. As if it was never installed.
I need it to see if I have all of the SSLv2 and weak ciphers disabled.
Any ideas?

It looks like the openSSL installation directory has not been added to your path environment variable.
If you don't need this done permanently, you can do it just for a command session by typing:

path=c:\path\to\openssl;%PATH%

Hello TrueBlue,

Add the <OpenSSL FOLDER>/bin folder to your PATH :
