I was looking into this recently as well. What I read was that there are no 2.0 header or .dll files. You simply query for 2.0 features and functionality through the extension mechanism. I could be wrong though.

Under Windows, you only have OpenGL 1.1 header and library. If you want more you must use extension mechanism.

I use glew for this (glew.sourceforge.net) - all I have to do is to include it in my project instead of opengl and call glewInit().

yeah,today I installed cg toolkit and tried to run a cg program and succeeded.

and then,i used glGetString(GL_VERSION ) to get the version of opengl.
it returned a string like that:"2.0.5279 WinXP RELEASE".

does it means my version is 2.0?i think so.
