This is a private question we received and thought it would be of value for other CopperSpice developers.

> (User) OpenSSL has many binary distributions on Windows. Which one should I use?

The CopperSpice supported versions of OpenSSL are 1.0.1g or later and the 1.1.x and 3.x series. On most platforms use your vendor package management command to download and install the OpenSSL development package.

On Windows you will need to build OpenSSL from source since they do not provide pre-built binary files. The following page in our CS Overview documentation provides the steps required to build for MSVC and MinGW.
