    glut question

    I'm looking into doing some openGL programming and I have found a lot of references to GLUT. I noticed that on the Window's systems you need to have a dll in your system folder. I am assuming that anyone who wishes to run the program would need the dll on their system also. Can anyone verify or correct me please.

    Thanks

    They need to have the DLL but I think it is enough if you provide it with the exe file (in the same folder as the exe).

    I would assume that as well, being how windows checks the processes folder for dll's as well as the system folders.
