LNK error: unresolved external symbol glutBitmapCharacter

Recommended Posts

I am having alot of trouble printing text to the screen due to this error. It is something to do with the glut. file which i have linked to and made sure it is also in my project folder. Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? thankyou

It's a linker error, so you have to make sure that your linker can find the glut library. I can't really help much beyond that. What compiler/linker are you using?

i am using visual studio. i don't get it because all the libs, dll and .h files are linked to and in their correct place!

this is really limiting me to producing second rate games at the moment too!

Then I suppose the only explanation is that the specific glut dll you have doesn't contain an implementation of the function. You could try reinstalling glut.
Or perhaps it's a bug in glut. Then maybe one of the open source alternatives to glut, like freeglut and openglut have fixed it.
