I need to link to glut64.lib in Visual Studio 2015 because I am playing with some old stuff that uses original GLUT. After trying some broken links, I saw this thread: https://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/showthread.php/161665-Uh-where-did-glut-go. Unsurprisingly, all the links therein are broken 'cause that was 15 years ago. Now, after 15 years, it is 2018 and where can I find glut64.lib to download?
I would suggest using FreeGLUT. It provides 32-bit and 64-bit implementations of GLUT.
Just recompile with “glut.h”, link with “freeglut.lib” (32-bit or 64-bit), and make sure “freeglut.dll” (32-bit or 64-bit) is available when you run it.
I know freeglut, but I have no choice because, as I said in the original post, “I am playing with some old stuff”. I have to use glut64.lib.
PS: I am using GLFW & gl3w for new projects.
OK, I just found that glut64.lib (and its dll) is available somewhere in the package. Problem solved.
