You need also to tell the compiler you are using the glut lib. I mean, to link the lib with the application...
Are you doing this?

>object/library modules i put the glut32 glu32 and opengl32 libs.but is there a difference between creating a win32 console application and a win32 application?

For Glut, you must use a Win32 console.

And if you don't use Glut, you can take Win32 application.

You should tell what compiler you are using but I guess it is Borland and you get this only in your C++ code?
