ImportError: DLL load failed


I wrote a simple C code to work with OpenSSL and it builds fine.
however when i import it, i get an error
ImportError: DLL load failed. The specified module could not be found.

the file is in Python/Lib directory.

the code is below.


#include <Python.h>
#include "openssl/bio.h"
#include "openssl/ssl.h"
#include "openssl/err.h"

static PyObject * start(PyObject *self, PyObject *args)
int x;
BIO * bio;
char buf[1024];
int len = 512;
bio = BIO_new_connect("www.ibm.com:80");
//handle error
x = -5;
if(BIO_do_connect(bio) <= 0)
//handle failed connection
x = -4;
x = BIO_read(bio, buf, len);
if(x == 0)
//handle closed connection
x = -3;
else if(x<0)
if(! BIO_should_retry(bio))
//handle failed read
x = -2;
//do something to handle the retry
return Py_BuildValue("i", x);

static PyMethodDef testSSLMethods[] = {
{"start", start, METH_VARARGS, "start and test SSL."},

(void) Py_InitModule("testSSL", testSSLMethods);
