as you can see from the name its build with MingW32, so it is not
compatible with MSVC (same goes for my binaries too); so you have to
build it yourself from sources; but that is really not that hard -
especially not if you build from comamndline rather than messing up with
project files (and thats true for all depend libs too).
So I'd suggest you start with OpenSSL, then build libssh2, and finally
The problem with MSVC builds is that there are meanhwile a lot of
different versions out, and in addition compatiblity also depends on
compile-time switches, so providing binaries makes not much sense.
