    Re: unresolved external symbol

    You need also to tell the compiler you are using the glut lib. I mean, to link the lib with the application...
    Are you doing this?

    For Glut, you must use a Win32 console.

    And if you don't use Glut, you can take Win32 application.

    Re: unresolved external symbol

    You should tell what compiler you are using but I guess it is Borland and you get this only in your C++ code?
