View Full Version : GLUT problem

10-09-2002, 06:58 AM
Hi there,

i'm having a problem with glut library, when i try to compile a simple program i receive an error like "glut.h" and i've already installed glut (maybe i didn't installed it well), so i'm asking for help, how do i install the glut library correctly? And what is the flags to use with gcc to compile with glut.
Thank U All

If there was an error

when you run your program

1)"Cannot find glut.dll"

then there will an error in your setup

2)if error when you link

unresolned external winmain

just Open your linker setting and copy

"kernel32.lib user32.lib gdi32.lib winspool.lib comdlg32.lib advapi32.lib shell32.lib ole32.lib oleaut32.lib uuid.lib odbc32.lib odbccp32.lib /nologo /subsystem:console /incremental:yes /pdb:"Debug/yourapp.pdb" /debug /machine:I386 /out:"Debug/yourapp.exe" /pdbtype:sept "

If you want to have glut dll you can download it

from my web site

and for any more information

send me mail on


and have a good time ...
