    Unresolved Xternals, WTF!!

    ok i have posted the error, and attahced the code as a zip cuz its kinda long. I have linked opengl32.lib, glu32.lib, and glaux.lib to the program, and i have no idea why its not executing. (note it compiles find, it won't execute).

    Code:
    --------------------Configuration: Page49OGL - Win32 Debug--------------------
    Linking...
    LIBCD.lib(crt0.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _main
    Debug/Page49OGL.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
    Error executing link.exe.
    
    Page49OGL.exe - 2 error(s), 0 warning(s)

    Hmmm, if I recall correctly, sometimes when you link libraries out of order it won't link properly. Don't ask me for the proper order, either, because I've never used OpenGL before. I've seen this error a ton of times be posted, so you might want to do a search linking errors to find previous resolutions of the problem.

    that header was auto-included by VC++ because i chose simple app not blank app. When i run it with VC++, and click the red x to close the window, the animation stops but the window stays open till i right click on the window title bar and select close.

    i don't do open gl yet, but try putting in a case WM_DESTROY, use DestroyWindow, and/or set done to true in the WM_CLOSE and WM_DESTROY rather than just checking in your main loop.
