    What in the world am I doing wrong??!!

    Sigh. I know everyone is going to shoot theirself cause I'm asking this since it has been asked 1000's of times, but I'm getting the famous "glut32.lib: invalid file or disk full" error when i try to build a program. I've tried everything that people in the past were told to do on here(re: searched old posts) to no avail. I had the same problem last fall, and none of the advice given to other people with the same problem worked then either. I finally got it working by just dumping every needed file in the same folder as my code, but that doesnt even work this time. I have formatted since last fall, and didn't need a C++ compiler until now, so I just recently installed it. I use Visual C++ 5.0 and have Windows 2000. It is the exact same setup that I used last fall. I have tried a number of the glut/opengl files from different sites making sure it wasn't just a bad file that I got, but got the same error with all of them. It doesn't matter if I add the file to be linked in the project settings or not--I still get the same error.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a glaring error in what I'm doing, or if there is something I'm forgetting to do? I've seemingly tried everything but it just won't work! I again apologize for asking this question, cause it appeared to have been asked billions of times. Just nothing works!

    Rebuild the glut source code itself. It sounds like you are trying to use a MSVC++ 6.0 lib with MSVC++ 5.0. So rebuild the glut source code, and use the lib it produces (make sure that lib generation is enabled too).

    If u didnt find the problem you should check user permission(s). Or check READ ONLY attributes in the files you are running, a friend of mine had something like that. Good luck cause u'll need it. =\
