Hi,

I need to discover the installed OpenSSL Version of a windows Server and if OpenSSL is active.  

I need to ...
a)  ... check if OpenSSL is installed on a windows Server
b) ... check if OpenSSL is used

Thank you
Sascha

OpenSSL has not been used by Microsoft.  If you have some open source software installed, it may be included in that.

Search for ssleay32.dll and libeay32.dll, right click them, details tab, product version.
note you may have multiple instances of those files on your machine, as many products install their own.

As already stated though, Windows does not come by standard with OpenSSL (and ms commercial software, including outlook, IIS etc doesn't use it)
