the Win32 error messages are not always helpful, and you cant trust
them. Most likely you downloaded a libcurl version which has SSL / Zlib
/ SSH2 features / dependencies, and the additional required DLLs are

that's bad! This is my package, and as the name states its build with
MinGW32 compiler, and not with MSVC! Also this package has the
dependencies I mentioned above, and you need the zlib, openssl, libssh2
DLLs too in same directory...
But I strongly recommend that you get the source package, and compile
libcurl from source to make sure you dont run into compiler issues.
Also its a good idea to get the libcurlnet sources, and re-compile this
package too.
