I googled "openssl win32" and the first hit was the answer to your question.

Does it really make sense that you would ask the OpenSSL folks to explain
what PayPal means by something when you don't even tell us what PayPal
instructions you were following?
I can't find the exact PayPal page you're following, but I don't see
anything that resembles what you are talking about. Googling "adding it to
your path" and "paypal" produced nothing. Ditto for "siteaypal.org openssl
path". But that sounds like the kind of explanations experts give to each
other for things that are not meant to be done by people who don't know what
they're doing. (Otherwise they would have explained exactly how to do it.)
I'm sorry that this falls on you, but PayPal is being really stupid here.
They are creating a web page for people with no security knowledge and
telling them to go find a gun, find some bullets, and see if they can get
the contraption to work.
The approach you are attempting is only needed with scripts which would
require much more knowledge than you seem to have. (Again, no offense.) If
you just need a button, follow PayPal's directions to use their own web site
to create and encrypt the button. There is no reason you need to do it
