Since the library seems to have been built on 15 Oct 2007, it's probably v61, which has a release date of December 2006. See https://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/naif/toolkit//C/PC_ ... sualC_32bit/packages/whats.new

thanks

when you do your programming using your cspice.lib do you use visual studio?
if so what version? if not what do you use?

oddly in my case, using visual studio 2012, i can link to your cspice.lib for programming SPICE but any newer SPICE toolkits made capice.lib that I link to dont work giving me linker errors.
