Making glut.h work
I'm using VC8 in an XP environment. I have just now downloaded glut.h and installed the three main files in their various places, and my program will build fine, but when I try to run it, the thing crashes with the message
"The procedure entry point __glutInitWithExit could not be located in the dynamic link library glut32.dll".
I put glut32.lib in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\lib.
I put glut32.dll in system32.
I put glut.h in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\Include\gl.
One thing to note is that when I created the project, I made it an Empty Project in the project creation wizard, but I don't see how that should matter.
If you run "dumpbin /exports c:\windows\system32\glut32.dll" what do you get?
Basically Windows tells me that it can't find "dumpbin"
It's probably not in your path.

dumpbin is installed with Visual Studio.
EDIT: If you installed VC8 using default settings, you might already have a "Visual Studio Command Prompt" pinned into your Start menu. If so, launch that and try the command again.
