    @Mark - It is a requirement of the .NET core install. Please see the link in step 2. Are you saying that MSFT is incorrect on their site? – goodguys_activate Aug 10 '16 at 20:49
  • Yes but your scripts one;y install openssl and not .Net 9and surely any package manage manages dependences) – user151019 Aug 10 '16 at 20:50

    These aren't "my" scripts. These come from the MSFT website linked above – goodguys_activate Aug 10 '16 at 20:52
  • The step 3 is not obvious in your answer please provide more than the link to make it equal to the other parts – user151019 Aug 10 '16 at 20:53
