This library was built using Visual Studio 2019, and can either be downloaded and compiled from source or downloaded as a Nuget Package if you prefer - search for SpyderClientLibrary from the Nuget package manager to get started.

If you are running Windows 8.1 or later, take a look at the Spyder Client for Windows application in the Windows Store for an example of some of the things possible.
