I am new to OpenGL API.
I have started reading SuperBible OpenGL 5th Edition. I have installed Visual C++ 2010.
I have tried the very first programme in the book . Rendering a triangle. However when I write the same code into C++ IDE and when I compile it I am getting the following error.
Unhandled exception at 0x00000000 in MyFirstOpenGLProgramme.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000000.
The very first line triangle.Begin(GT_TRIANGLES, 3); is failing .
Can any guide me through this.
Thanks in advance,
have similar problem. any help?
I am also getting the same error. I too was trying to render a triangle for gaining more depth into Open GL but I am right now halted on my progress because of this annoying unhandled exception error. I could not find any help regarding this in the forums.
I got the same problem. You may check your Opengl support first. The Windows default version is 1.1. But SuperBible 5th needs a higher version. So, the first choice is to update your Graphics Driver(I did so and the problem’s gone). Second, you may try the SuperBible 4th, it needs a lower version of Opengl.
p.s. I’m new in this, too. If it’s doesn’t work, sorry
