Create a opengl project in Visual Studio 2005

Hi everyone! My first post to this forum, and I am really looking forward to start learning openGL.

First of all I would like to create a very simple application written in c++. I would like to create an app where I can draw some lines, polygons and squares.

Can anyone help me out how to start this project?

Any help is greatly appreciated!


Try Nehe tutorials:

Definitely take a look at NeHe.

If you’re using VS 2005, I assume you’ll eventually want to learn how to use OpenGL with .NET forms and all that fun stuff.

If you’d like, you can check out the project I posted on this thread.
