    compiler is not able to locate "stdafx.h"

    The title pretty much says it all. I'm following the OpenGL tutorial here and I've copied the code in the turorial and tried compiling it (I'm using Dev-C++). The compiler spits an error saying the it can't find the "stdafx.h" header.

    That header is a Microsoftism. Search for "OpenGL tutorial". Click on the NeHe link.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Search engine.
    First hit.
    Some material here is dated.
    Or it actually states that it is using a specific compiler.
    This syntax prevents Visual C++
    Use Visual C++ version 6 and you should have no problems.
