I'm a computer science student in Canada, and I'm embarking on a large OpenGL programming project.

My first major setback, however, is that I can't seem to run ANY OpenGL programs on my computer. I learned to program OpenGL on the computers at school, but I was hoping to continue my work at home.

The error message: "The OPENGL32.DLL file is linked to missing export GDI32.DLL:GdiSwapBuffers." I get this message when I run any OpenGL games, screensavers, whatever.

I had a RagePro card, but I bought a Voodoo3 hoping it would work. Same error message.

My system:

Windows 98
K6-2 400Mhz
128 Mb RAM
Asus motherboard
Ali chipset
Voodoo3 video card

I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

you have to put GDI32.DLL into your system directory under windows
c:\windows\system
