Hi @gendiaaa ,

It is great to see your interest in MQTT and HiveMQ! Please be welcome to our community.

The error indicates that you either do not have OpenSSL tool installed in your Windows system or that you simply need to add its path to the PATH environment variable.

For example please refer to this article: Installing OpenSSL on Windows 10 and updating PATH | by Nintendo Engineer | The Startup | Medium – it explains both how to install OpenSSL and how to add to the PATH.

I hope this helps.
Kind regards,
Dasha from HiveMQ team
