Question Regarding LZO library

Post by gog » Mon Jul 12, 2021 7:00 am

Hi, everyone.

I am trying to create original VPN software with openvpn-2.5.3 source code.
OpenVPN requires the LZO library ,but I found by chance the difference of .dll’s file name between MSI installer(OpenVPN-2.5.3-I601-amd64.msi) and downloading via vcpkg.

The file name is as follows:
MSI installer: liblzo2-2.dll
vcpkg: lzo2.dll

What is the difference between the two files?
I would like to install the correct and newer dll file.
Which dll file is correct or newer dll file to create VPN software with openvpn-2.5.3?

Thanks in advance.

I doubt that there is any difference, except that Microshaft will not co-operate with the rest of us.

Thank you for your prompt reply.
What kind of relationship between Microshaft and OpenVPN ,or LZO?

I am glad to inform you that the problem is now solved.

I compared the source code between the two files and below LZO official source code.
I find the two files are completely the same one.
