I'm trying to write my own 3D engine without using GLUT... But it failes when I try to load an image with DevIL Top image is a screenshot with Win32 code and no glut lower image is from my GLUT engine.. the texture files are the same and is in JPG format. this is how I do in the non GLUT engine
ILuint	ilImage;

ilGenImages( 1, &ilImage );
ilBindImage( ilImage );

const bool loaded = ilLoadImage( (const ILstring)FileName.c_str() ) == 1;

if( !loaded )
	CLog::errorMessage( "Failed to load texture %s", FileName.c_str() );
	return NULL;

ILenum ilFormat = IL_RGB;

if( ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_BITS_PER_PIXEL) == 32 )
	ilFormat = IL_RGBA;

const bool converted = ilConvertImage( ilFormat, IL_UNSIGNED_BYTE ) == 1;

if( !converted )
	CLog::errorMessage("Failed to convert image data for texture %s", FileName.c_str() );
	return NULL;

GLenum target	= GL_TEXTURE_2D;
GLint MagFilter = GL_LINEAR;
GLint MinFilter = GL_LINEAR;
GLint format	= GL_RGB;

if( ilFormat == IL_RGBA )
	format = GL_RGBA;

glGenTextures( 1, &tu->m_iTextureID );
glBindTexture( target, tu->m_iTextureID );

// Set texture filter
glTexParameteri(target, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, MagFilter); 
glTexParameteri(target, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, MinFilter);

// Upload image data
glTexImage2D(target, 0, ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_BPP), ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_WIDTH), ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_HEIGHT), 0, ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_FORMAT), GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, ilGetData());

ilDeleteImages( 1, &ilImage );

I have tried with ilut and I got the same result.

tu->m_iTextureID = ilutGLLoadImage((ILstring)FileName.c_str());

When do you load the images? I can't say for sure, but I believe if you're trying to load the images before you've created your OpenGL context, it might fail.
