Upon trying to run OpenLDAP on Windows after a non-eventful installation, I get the error that gssapi32.dll is missing. Reinstalling does nothing to alleviate the problem, nor does altering the install settings/backend.

gssapi32.dll is part of MIT Kerberos for Windows.

You may need to add %ProgramFiles%\MIT\KfW\bin to the %PATH% variable, for OpenLDAP to find the libraries.
