When using OpenGL95.exe do the following:
- Copy the DLLs to your Windows root directory and/or your Windows System32 Directroy.
- If using Visual C++ 6.0, Copy all *.h files to \VC98\Include\GL
- If using VC6, Copy all *.lib files to \VC98\lib

Hi i don't understand what is Visual C ++ 6.0?

It is a program that Microsoft created for c++. Borland created Borland C++, Someone created Dev-C++, and Microsoft Created Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0. VC6 Standard costs around $100, or you can buy Visual C++ .Net 2002 Standard for $60 at the Academic Superstore (on-line).

VC6-OGL: I dont think we wants to develop with OpenGL, he just wants an OpenGL installation for his games so your advice is a bit off.
Remember this is the end-user and not the developer board.
Since Win95B, OpenGL is included in all Windows versions. All you need is an up-to-date version of your display driver and you are set.
