OpenGl Programming Guide 8th edition example doesn't work

I bought OpenGL Programming Guide book (ver 4.3) and I try to run first example on the Windows 7 (VS2013 C++) and also on the Mac OSX Maveric (Xcode 5) operating system.
I cannot make it works, I made lot of researches online but every ‘solution’ gives me a different sort of errors.
I tried to found some website/forum for that book but there is nothing out there where I can post a question related to the book.
Is anyone here able to post step by step guide how to set up the system and run code from this book (just first example)?
It would be really helpful if you can explain how to set up the system and run any code with OpenGL 4.3.
Many thanks
