I am totally unaware of 3D graphics and openGL, so I started reading the red book and the superbible because I have a project to do. I installed Visual Studio .NET’s Intel C++ compiler in my Windows 2000 environment and tried to compile a very short program. Nothing! I then tried to compile a 3-line program in C to see if there is something wrong with the compiler: again nothing (the compiler does its job but then Vis.Studio seems to shut down when it tries to execute the program).
What is wrong? I know it is something trivial that I ignore but I’m stuck from step No 1 and I would really like to start doing stuff in openGL.
