Is there a way to recompile the GLUT Libraries to be used with Windows XP and Visual Studio .NET? Does anyone have the glut.lib, glut32.lib, glut.dll, glut32.dll and glut.h working with Visual Studio .NET and Windows XP?

It should work as it is without recompilation. I don't use glut myself, but haven't had any problems running glut apps on WinXP or compiling them with MSVC.NET

Running already compiled glut apps are fine. Writing and compiling new glut apps are not.

normally you can use the same libs and headers and dlls as always before, where is the problem you get?

First I get this message,

cube.cpp(134): fatal error C1010: unexpected end of file while

looking for precompiled header directive

So I set the Create/Use Precompile Header to Not Using Precompile Header under Page

Properties.

Then I get these message,

So I add:

#pragma comment (lib, "opengl32.lib")
#pragma comment (lib, "glu32.lib")
#pragma comment (lib, "glut32.lib")

in front of the #include statements.
it compiles successfully. But only brings up a blank windows.

All this using VS.NET to create a MFC.

That's what the pragma statements at the bottom of the poster's error description are for.

He indicates that it now compiles, but does not produce graphics output.

VS.NET-XP person: I am not familiar with .NET, but you mention creating an MFC application at the end of your post. Try creating a win32 console application instead.

I'm kinda confused about your having had to pragma the libs in your app - the glut header normally does that for you. Perhaps you've got an old glut distribution?

hmmmz I got the same problem here with the nvidia SDK

As I mentioned in the beginner's form about this same topic, I was able to compile a glut app in .Net by using the VC6 headers and libraries with no problems. So far as him not getting any screen output, it is probably one of the many problems that plague beginners like not setting up the projection or modelview matrices correctly.

Just noticed the comment about MFC... I'm confused now. Are you using MFC to create your window or glutCreateWindow? If you're using MFC to create the window, you'll need to use ChoosePixelFormat, DescribePixelFormat, and SetPixelFormat in order to enable OpenGL. If you're using glutCreateWindow, recreate your project as a Win32 console app and try again...

Tried the Win32 Project to create a win23 console version. Get these errors:

Win32ConsoleWin32ProjectCube fatal error LNK1169: one or more multiply defined symbols found
Win32ConsoleWin32ProjectCube error LNK2005: _main already defined in Win32ConsoleWin32ProjectCube.obj

and I am using glutCreateWindows. This is the whole program : http://www.eng.auburn.edu/~kchang/comp7400/cube.c from Dr. Angle’s web site http://www.cs.unm.edu/~angel/BOOK/SECOND_EDITION/

Link is the program that is a working program. Works fine compiling on Unix system with some #include monification. Professor did a demo. I add the #pragma comments line before the #include lines in order to get pass the link errors.

Did you create a Win32 console app that had source code and then try and add that .c file as another file? That's a no no... that will cause you to have two main() functions, and give you that error.

I know it doesn't help you a lot, but I just did a GLUT program under VS.NET, works like a charm.

I don't think the problem is from .NET nor GLUT. There must be something messy somewhere else.

Make sure you that in application settings you choose console application and
check empty project and turn of precompiled headers.
That should do it.
