I am writing some OpenGL programs using GLUT as my windowing interface, Every time I try to run my programs I can compile them but then get the error

application has failed to start because glut32.dll was not found

glut32.dll is in the bin folder for vc7 in my visual studio dot net folder so I do have it
Should I be putting it somewhere else so that the program can find it to use it or do I just need to re-get glut. Please help I have about 10 programs that are all having this same error

thanks
W

Dll are searched for in about 3 locations, ($WindowsRoot), ($WindowsRoot)/system32, and the directory the executable is located in.

Mine are located in ($WindowsRoot)/system32.
