There is no link in the developer area where i can download the libraries Opengl32.lib, glut32.lib and glu32.lib
Are there different versions for MSVC and Borland?

Those libraries should ship with your compiler.

However, you may not be able to access OpenGL functions above version 1.1, to do this you will need (on win32 platforms) to declare a series of function pointers and then assign them with wglGeProcAddress() calls. This loads them directly from the driver DLL, and keeps things fairly up to date (assuming your driver is).

Actually, GLUT may not, however, you can get it by following the links on the left side of this site (under the heading 'developers') go to FAQs and on the Technical one, GLUT is about the third topic.
It provides a link there I think.
