I'm finally getting into OpenGL after several years, but the link my friend gave doesn't work at the moment:

http://www.opengl.org/resources/libraries/glut/glut/glutdlls37beta.zip

I'm wondering if this is the right link anyway because I'm not interested in GLUT but only in C++/Win32. I'm basically looking for the Windows OpenGL libraries that include opengl.lib and glu32.lib and their dlls. Is there another source to download the latest libraries/dlls for a Win32 project?

pvaira,
Check Nate Robins web site. I believe he actually ported GLUT for Win32.

Thanks, but I'm not looking for the glut libraries though. I just need the opengl/glu32 libs/dlls if you can find them. I'm not having much luck since the website changed.

Actually, I'm beginning to like GLUT for starting out. I'll work with this and periodically check the website for the opengl/glu32 link. I don't know what happened to it.

Sorry, my mistake. You may check Mesa. It is not only for Win32, but it will be very helpful if you are looking for source codes.

You do not need to search for OpenGL dll files. You need to install the latest driver of your graphics card. VC++ compiler has an old header file that is sufficient for you.
However you need new glut files and in the link suggested in previous post you can find them.
Then you need to copy them as i have stated here:

haha I didn't know the platform sdk already had everything I was looking for. I'll check out that link again. Thanks for the help.
