Thanks for your response.!
1) Will there be an issue if we change the names from ssleay32.lib -> ssl.lib and libeayfips32.lib -> crypto.lib . I remember reading on some forms that changing the names of the library which are generated by* fips build does cause issue. Is this true..?
2) Also while building fips, does it support buiding binaries with debug, non-debug, single thread and mutitreaded like how openssl does..? or will there be any issues. I could not find this in the user guide docs. If there is another reference please point to that.

Yes in 1.1.2 we had to use a Unix like build environment under Windows in
order to have the same build procedure on all platforms.
This is no longer the case and VC++ can be used throughout.
Note that you can also use a recent 0.9.8 snapshot as the FIPS changes have
now been merged into 0.9.8.

Well it is a test version and not validated at present, but yes they are
