Help starting out with MSVC 6

I use MSVC++ 6 and have an older version of OpenGL already installed. Can I download a newer version (headers and libraries I assume) and be able to compile new applications? Or is this something I’d need to purchase?

I guess if anyone could point me to something discussing how to get started with a newer version of OpenGL using MSVC, that would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Did you read the Wiki?

Newer versions are dynamically loaded. Google for GLEW OpenGL loader. And do yourself a favour and use a newer compiler version. Visual Studio Express Edition is for free…
