    error:can not open GL\glut.h

    It's my first time I use OpenGL today, I downloaded some sample code from the website and try to run it then got the above error. My OS is windowsME, I have linked the 3 .lib files from visual sutio\lib to my project. and I'm sure the glut.h file is there under GL. Could anyboday help me on this?
    thanks in advance for your help, i really want to make it work.

    Right, the hglut.h should be in a directory called GL in your include directory. Check that it looks OK in the editor.

    I am not using MSVC but most compilers lets you change the default for the include dir. Check this also.

    Go in Visual C++ directory. Copy glut.h (others: glu.h, gl.g, glaux.h, glui.h,......) in the directory:
    For lib (gl.lib, glu.lib, glut.lib) , look at:

    Visual C++, in Setting Project, You must add librairies name in 'link' ,else VC doesn't want to link classes.

    Now, in your first program, write:

    #include <GL\gl.h>
    #include <GL\glu.h>
    #include <GL\glut.h>

    That's all.
