The MySQL FAQ for SEC 1 and 2 say that most MySQL binaries have SSL support, but under Windows it will not work. The problem is that 2 definitions are missing in the Visual Studio files (.sln, .vcproj).

A custom build with the suggested fix will result in binaries and libraries that meet the security needs as well as match up to what's being advertised.

How to repeat:
mysqld --ssl-ca=CA-cert.pem --ssl-cert=Localhost-cert.pem --ssl-key=Localhost-key.pem

060313 10:38:52 [ERROR] mysqld: unknown variable 'ssl-ca=CA-cert.pem'  

Suggested fix:
For each of the solution components, enable HAVE_OPENSSL and HAVE_YASSL under Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> Preprocessor -> Preprocessor Definitions.

Thank you for the bug report.

From the Manual: Using yaSSL
Using MySQL's built-in yaSSL support makes it easier to use secure connections. You don't have to install
OpenSSL and perform the other steps described in Section, “Requirements (OpenSSL)”.
Also, both MySQL and yaSSL employ the same licensing model.
Currently, yaSSL support is available for these platforms:
• Linux/x86-64 Red Hat Enterprise 3.0
• Linux RHAS21 Itanium-2 with gcc, statically linked
• Linux Itanium-2 with gcc
• Windows (all builds)

Using (for trials) MySQL 5.04.45-Community-NT MySQL Community Build.

My build was not built with SSL , The HAVE_SSL variables say 'NO'.
Is there a way to incorporate YaSSL into my server for trials ?

Thank you.
