hallo everybody,
i have written a very simple program using the glut library.i didn't have any problems until one day after compiling the code without any errors ,when i run the project i see the black window of the compiler and i get the message glut:fatal error d:\...\...\pr.exe(the directory) failed to create OpenGL rendering context.any ideas ?

Hi !

Does any other OpenGL applications work ?

If they do, does any other glut application work ?

If they do, check your code so you don't do anything stupid, just because an application compiles without errors does not mean that there can't be anything wrong with it.

hallo ,
thanks for the interest.your question is very correct.i also have problems with other gl programs.for example i have problems with some demos,my matlab environment looks corrupted ...it looks like i lost some kind of drivers but i reinstalled my graphics card drivers and this didn't solve anything.if you can help...thanks on advance
i know this might not be a coding problem but you know if somebody can help after all it has to do with opengl :eek: )

Hi !

Did your OpenGL drivers worked ok in that past or is this the first time you try to run opengl apps on that hardware ?

dear mikael thanks again,
i have used opengl applications in the past and have made some simple coding in opengl by myself as well under visual c++ 6.0 .i mean everything was working fine until one day my programs stoped working.i get this message "can't create opengl rendering context".i think that maybe uninstalling a game or sth like that i made a damage to my graphic drivers.i don't know .open gl is not like direct x?isn't there a setup programme?(silly question?).if you can help me i'll learn some things also!thanks on advance!
