How? Using the OneClick installer's silent/scripted install? From the
zip files? If the latter, how and where?

SSLEAY32.DLL should be part of the PostgreSQL install and in the same
directory as the PostgreSQL binaries. Is it not?

No, do *not* mess with WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 . People who tell you to install
random libraries there are almost certainly wrong, and are parroting
advice that used to apply back in the Windows 95/98 days before Windows
preferentially loaded libraries from the same directory as the application.
