The current version of Neon uses OpenSSL even on Windows, so I don't
think that it has access to the CA certificates installed in Windows. My
guess is that the Windows port of OpenSSL looks for a PEM file
containing CA certificates, just as it does on unix.

I do not know exactly where OpenSSH on Windows looks for the PEM file
contaning the CA certificates, but I'm hoping that one of the Windows
gurus do. It would be really nice if a CA certificate list was included
in the installer.

It is already on by default.
