What is the OpenGL Optimizer? I've never heard of this library. How does it work?

You can find more info about it on sgi's web site. Right here: http://www.sgi.com/software/optimizer/

As for running it with VC++, you just set up all the libraries and headers like you would any other SDK, just copy them into whatever folders you want them in and go into the VC++ options and make sure and inform VC++ where these libraries exist. You will have to go under Tools->Options then the Directories tab.

Also make sure you have the Image Format Library 1.3.1 for Windows. This is needed if you want to use Optimizer with VC++. You can get it here: http://www.sgi.com/products/evaluation/pc_ifl_1.3.1/
