    'No such file or directory'

    Hey, I have a quick question - I am very, very new to OpenGL and the small program that I was given to comprehend hasn't run yet (I've entered it below). When I try to run it, VC++ says: fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'GL/glut.h': No such file or directory
    Error executing cl.exe.

    GL1.exe - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

    The only file I have in the project is the main cpp file. I have downloaded the gl-3.7 file from this site and run the batch file to make sure I have all the proper libraries and the like. Is there something else I need to do? I've tried including the actual glut.h, but that doesn't work. Until I get my book in the mail, I have no idea what I'm doing Sorry about this, but any help is greatly appreciated.

    Compiling with GL\gl.h instead produces:

    Compiling...
    main.cpp

    I know this is the beginners board, but what in heaven do they teach nowadays in C++ classes?

    Unless you understand the concept of include files, libraries, objectfiles and last but not least what a linker is and what it does (my favorite), there is no real point in starting OpenGL coding because it will endup as a very frustrating experience where you tumble from one problem into another.

    Sure, you can pick up alot while you go through some tutorials, but you need to understand the very basics of C/C++ (or any other language).

    Re: 'No such file or directory'

    Do you have glut installed?

    If not, take a look at
    http://www.opengl.org/resources/libr...s.html#windows
    and download the precompiled glut dlls and libs.
    unzip them and copy the dlls to whatever:\windows\system32 or system (don't know anymore).
    copy the libs to your vc_dir\vc98\lib.
    then copy the glut.h to your vc_dir\vc98\include\gl\
