I'm pretty new to OpenGL, and keep getting a ton of errors whenever I try to compile. I'm including these files: #include <gl\gl.h> #include <gl\glu.h> #include <gl\glaux.h> And linking the libraries: opengl32.lib glu32.lib glaux.lib For some reason, I get tons and tons of errors that say things like these: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\gl\GL.h(1153): error C2086: 'int APIENTRY' : redefinition C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\gl\GL.h(1168): error C2144: syntax error : 'void' should be preceded by ';' C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\gl\GL.h(1153): error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'glAlphaFunc' They're all from the file "gl.h", and even if I comment out #include <gl\gl.h> I still get them! Any idea why?

Thanks! That fixed everything. One question, I already had <windows.h> in a file that was #included before the .h file with those was #included. Does it have to do with putting <windows.h> right before the openGL libraries?
