On windows OpenGL 1.1 is included (Windows 98 and higher, for windows 95 you need to download a patch from microsoft).

So you can just link to OpenGL32.lib (and GLU32.lib) and your set to go.
Though on second thought you might need the platform SDK for the headers (and possibly the lib to). Since I had to download it for VC 2005 express.
Anyway ounce I installed VS 6 I was set to go.

with vc6 you've got everything you need.

As explained in the first Tutorial on Nehe's site you have to link the library's.
(As mldaalder already said the supplied library's are OpenGL version 1.1, so once you get to more advanced/newer functions you have to load them as extensions, wich is also explained in the tutorials)

So i suggest you just work your way trough the tutorials.

Good luck

You do NOT have to d/l or install any files. Just as I said in my previous post. If you have vc6 installed you've got everything you need to start developing your OpenGL applications. (Extensions not included)

(ps -> do install the latest videocard drivers)
