The actual size of the SSLPROTOCOLS struct/record should match the value of dwCount. Allocating such a record probably should go like

  LPSSLPROTOCOLS(GetMem(sizeOf(SSLPROTOCOLS) + (dwCount - 1) * sizeOf(SSLPROTOCOL)))

Sometimes a dummy record is to be appended at the end of the array, similar to the null character at the end of a null-terminated string. In that case it is possible that this 'sentinel' record is not counted in dwCount, but you should still allocate the space of course. Please refer to the documentation of the header file (I hope there is).

I hope this helps.
