Install Sooty on Windows 10

Kept trying to install Sooty by TheresAFewConors on my Windows 10 VM & hitting a wall with openssl (after installing VS 2015)

build\\Release_openssl.c(575): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'openssl/opensslv.h': No such file or directory error: command 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\BIN\x86_amd64\cl.exe' failed with exit code 2

Solution was to download & install OpenSSL for windows then copy:

This folder C:\Program Files\OpenSSL-Win64\include\openssl to C:\Python39\include

The contents of C:\Program Files\OpenSSL-Win64\lib to C:\Python39\libs

and it works \o/

It’d be cleaner to add those paths to the variables like this but I was lazy so..

set LIB="C:\Program Files\OpenSSL-win64\lib;%LIB%"
set INCLUDE="C:\Program Files\OpenSSL-win64\include;%INCLUDE%"
