Install GLEW with MinGW


I’m using QtCreator (so my compiler is MinGW) and I need to use VBO for my app. However I don’t know how to install glew (needed for VBO?) in my compiler. Can someone help me or send me somewhere to know how to resolve the problem?



You can compile glew from source code (this will give you 3 files: glew32.dll, libglew32.a and libglew32.dll.a).

To do so you can use msys (
Install it and specify where is your MinGW install, then start a terminal (a console), jump to where you have glew source code (with cd command), and just press make in the folder where there is the file Makefile.
