Get OpenGL to talk with Microsoft Visual Studio ?


I am an absolute neophyte, so I have no idea what I’m doing here. I want to write OpenGL programs on Microsoft VS C++. I’ve installed Microsoft VS 2010 Professional, but still trying to figure out how to install OpenGL library and get it to talk with M VS.

Here is what I have got. I found that in my Windows/System32 there are opengl32.dll and glu32.dll files. I looked around on the internet, they said that I need to download and install glut32.dll. I followed the instruction and got to the point when I tried to install the downloaded glut32.dll file, it gave me an error message: “DllRegisterServer entry point was not found.”

Please help me!

Thank you everyone in advance

Do not try to register glut. It is not COM.
Link you application with glut32.lib and have glut32.dll nearby your EXE (or in PATH).
