View Full Version : Help starting out with MSVC 6

I use MSVC++ 6 and have an older version of OpenGL already installed. Can I download a newer version (headers and libraries I assume) and be able to compile new applications? Or is this something I'd need to purchase?

I guess if anyone could point me to something discussing how to get started with a newer version of OpenGL using MSVC, that would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Newer versions are dynamically loaded. Google for GLEW OpenGL loader. And do yourself a favour and use a newer compiler version. Visual Studio Express Edition is for free...
