I recently had a discussion with someone involving 0.9.8g/h on XP SP3.
They uninstalled SP3 (reverted back to SP2) and it worked fine. 0.9.8h
requires the VC++ 2008 Redistributable to be installed. See link below
the link you used to install 0.9.8h. Even then, supposedly 0.9.8h
doesn't work under SP3.

This could be some sort of bug either in SP3 or OpenSSL (or both). I
don't have SP3 installed and I've heard various reports that it is
somewhat buggy. I generally like to wait until the dust settles before
installing the latest Service Pack.
