Need help: missing opengl32.lib, glu32.lib


I want to learn programming C++ with OpenGL and I have a problem on installation.

I followed every step from:

at step 5 they say

There should be lots of .lib files here, including “opengl32.lib” and “glu32.lib”.

but I do not have the opengl32.lib in my lib files and this file is also missing in the file I downloaded (from Step 1).

At Step 6 I have to add opengl32.lib and glu32.lib to the depandancies. But I do not have these files :stuck_out_tongue:

I am using Win7 64bit and Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.

now I copied a code of “rotating cube” and it works using #include <glut.h>
#include <gl\GL.h>

Those lib files are part of the Windows SDK. I would have thought they are installed with Visual Studio. Otherwise try downloading the latest Windows SDK.

Normally you just stick “opengl32.lib glu32.lib” into your projects properties under additional link dependencies.

ty im trying this now. =)
