* NodeJS
* OpenSSL (Development Libraries (header files) for compilation)
* For Windows you'll need http://slproweb.com/products/Win32OpenSSL.html installed to the default location of `C:\OpenSSL-Win32`
+ * When installing OpenSSL, you must tell it to put DLLs in `The Windows system directory` to avoid `The specified module could not be found.` errors.
* Please note that for this to build properly you'll need the Normal version of OpenSSL-Win<arch>, not the Light version. The reason for this is that we need to be able to compile the code using the header files that exist in the Normal version.
* For 64 bit use the 64 bit version and install to `C:\OpenSSL-Win64`
* `node-gyp`
