Okay, so I've been playing around with NeHe's lesson 1 using g++ under Windows(MingW). I'm fairly new to c++, and completely new to Windows GUI, so I assume this could be part of the problem. I've tried compiling with -mwindows, -lopengl32, -lglu32, and various combinations of these. I've tried including
#pragma comment(lib,"opengl32.lib")
#pragma comment(lib,"glu32.lib")
as well, with no luck. Anyways, on to the error messages!

This is using the command line: g++ -lopengl32 -lglu32 main.cpp -o main.exe -mwindows Any and all help is greatly appreciated(when are we going to get GDNet forum search back? I can't be the first with this problem, and the Google GDNet search only gave me the ideas outlined above.) Edit: Because I suck at source tags.

g++ main.cpp -lopengl32 -lglu32 -lgdi32 -mwindows -o main.exe

Using your advice I fooled around more with the order of my command line argument and... it works! Thanks, feel stupid for not thinking that one up myself.
