    A linker error

    Hi all,

    Using Visual Studio 2017 I created an Empty Project named opengl. Then tested the code in the page 40 of the book "OpenGL.Programming.Guide.9th.Edition", Example1.1:

    Code :
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    #include "vgl.h"
    #include "LoadShaders.h"
     
    enum VAO_IDs { Triangles, NumVAOs };
    enum Buffer_IDs { ArrayBuffer, NumBuffers };
    enum Attrib_IDs { vPosition = 0 };
    GLuint VAOs[NumVAOs];
    GLuint Buffers[NumBuffers];
    const GLuint NumVertices = 6;
    //--------------------------------------------------------------------
    //
    // init
    //
    void
    init(void)
    {
    	static const GLfloat vertices[NumVertices][2] =
    	{
    		{ -0.90, -0.90 }, // Triangle 1
    		{ 0.85, -0.90 },
    		{ -0.90, 0.85 },
    		{ 0.90, -0.85 }, // Triangle 2
    		{ 0.90, 0.90 },
    		{ -0.85, 0.90 }
    	};
    	glCreateBuffers(NumBuffers, Buffers);
    	glNamedBufferStorage(Buffers[ArrayBuffer], sizeof(vertices),
    		vertices, 0);
    	ShaderInfo shaders[] = {
    		{ GL_VERTEX_SHADER, "triangles.vert" },
    		{ GL_FRAGMENT_SHADER, "triangles.frag" },
    		{ GL_NONE, NULL }
    	};
    	GLuint program = LoadShaders(shaders);
    	glUseProgram(program);
    	glGenVertexArrays(NumVAOs, VAOs);
    	glBindVertexArray(VAOs[Triangles]);
    	glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, Buffers[ArrayBuffer]);
    	glVertexAttribPointer(vPosition, 2, GL_FLOAT,
    		GL_FALSE, 0, BUFFER_OFFSET(0));
    	glEnableVertexAttribArray(vPosition);
    }
    //--------------------------------------------------------------------
    //
    // display
    //
    void
    display(void)
    {
    	static const float black[] = { 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f };
    	glClearBufferfv(GL_COLOR, 0, black);
    	glBindVertexArray(VAOs[Triangles]);
    	glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, NumVertices);
    }
    //--------------------------------------------------------------------
    //
    // main
    //
    int
    main(int argc, char** argv)
    {
    	glfwInit();
    	GLFWwindow* window = glfwCreateWindow(640, 480, "Triangles", NULL,
    		NULL);
    	glfwMakeContextCurrent(window);
    	gl3wInit();
    	init();
     
    	while (!glfwWindowShouldClose(window))
    	{
    		display();
    		glfwSwapBuffers(window);
    		glfwPollEvents();
    	}
     
    	glfwDestroyWindow(window);
    	glfwTerminate();
    }

    When I compile it, it needs a lib file named: "glfw3_d.lib"
    Where to find it please?

    Do you read that book?
    ?Have your tested that code on your VS?

    A quick google came up with this. No idea if it is what you need or not, but might be helpful:
