Can’t open config file: /usr/local/ssl/openssl.cnf on Windows

I faced the above issue while trying to use openssl in window. I have downloaded openssl and extracted in my windows server. After that I tried executing the following command.

openssl.exe genrsa -out subdomain.mydomain.com.key 2048

Solution:

Open Powershell

set OPENSSL_CONF=c:\[PATH TO YOUR OPENSSL DIRECTORY]\bin\openssl.cnf

Now execute the openssl command to generate the certificate. It will work without any issues. I hope this is helpful.
