View Full Version : OpenGL 2.0 library for windows

You know some site to download an OpenGL 2.0 library (gl.h, glu.h, glx.h, gl.lib, opengl.dll, etc.)
In linux it works fine with NVidia drivers, only it is necessary to enable
#define GL_GLEXT_PROTOTYPES in your code. However, in windows it is really poor, since is necessary the use of glew, glee, or another library to initialize the OpenGL 2.0 features.

There isn't an updated opengl32.dll

The wiki

"Remember that GL is a system component on Windows. DO NOT modify or copy opengl32.dll from one OS to another."

The advantage of loading function pointers is that your exe will run on all machines. It's your job to detect if a feature is present or not.

You aren't obligated to use glew or glee. Why not use them?
