OpenGL cannot be run?

When the screen say:

GLUT: Fatal Error in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Include\Debug
\1.exe: visual with necessary capabilities not found.
Press any key to continue

What was wrong about the opengl code? Is that anything i forget to included? or the development environment required other things?

Someone pls help me!!!

Hi !

Your glut application is trying to use a feature of OpenGL this is not available with your OpenGL implementation, like overlay planes or what ever.

Have a look at the the glut initialization code and see if you can find out what it is.

It could also be that you try to use palette mode when you use tru color mode or something like that.
