ERROR: GL 1.1 and up are not supported

I’m a beginner programmer trying to get my first shader to run in my OpenGL application.

I have included <GL/glew.h> (before glut), installed the dll file into SYSTEM32, the glew32.lib in LIB and glew32.h etc in include. I have also set linker to read glew32.lib

If I run this code in my main function to identify the problem:


int main(int argc, char *argv[])
glutInit(&argc, argv);

GLenum err = glewInit();
if (GLEW_OK != err)
fprintf(stderr, "Error: %s
", glewGetErrorString(err));
fprintf(stdout, "Status: Using GLEW %s
", glewGetString(GLEW_VERSION));

…so on ------

it returns the error message:

ERROR: GL 1.1 and up are not supported

I need your help. Really thanks in advance.
