    Question GLUT and Dev-CPP

    Hi Folks;

    I'm trying to get a project working in Dev-CPP 4.9.9.1 but can't seem to make GLUT work. I've installed the GLUT package and added the lines

    -lglut32 -lglu32 -lopengl32 -lwinmm -lgdi32

    under Tools->Compiler Options->Add these commands to the linker command line

    Even though I have done all that as suggested by http://www.physics.buffalo.edu/phy41...andDevC++.html my program still won't compile. It gives me a whole slew of errors related to GLUT. Could someone please give me a suggestion on how to get this working?

    Best to post some or all (if there's not too many!) of them.

    You should search this board for 'glut' as you may find a specific solution to the problems you are having.

    You know I am having this problem with that thing. You know when you push that button. I was hoping someone could help.

    J/K Just couldn't resist. I guess I have been at the computer for too long.

    Make sure you have the glut libraries in your lib dir, and your dll's in c:\windows\system
    Microsoft is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistant one.
