I have recently started opengl and glut programming, I have tried to compile the examples, and i have read the documentation but i get the same error, can't convert void to HBRUSH
that is the error, more or less, i have tried all the examples and they all give me the same error, why? am i suposed to do this in win console app instead od win32 app?

More like a user error, please tell us the website you download the example from and the compiler that you are using.

For glut you need to have it set as a console app and if you are compiling as a C try doing it as a C++.

try replacing this line
wc.hbrBackground= NULL;

with

wc.hbrBackground=(HBRUSH)NUll;

where wc is the name of your window class
