When I try to run examples from the Opengl superbible cd I get this error: "This application has failed to start because glut32.dll was not found" However every other opengl example works on my system. Do I have to put glut32.dll in my system32 folder in order to get it to work? (running xp, if that matters). Thanks

Glut32 is not part of OpenGL, it is simply a wrapper library used by some people (which is why most OpenGL apps work on your system, they don''t use glut) to simplify working with OpenGL.

To get a copy of Glut32.dll either pop it into Google, or go to the the first link.
