Doing Nehe tutorials and Visual C++ spat this out at me. Since I have not idea what so ever what it means. I ask you smart programmers what I am to do.

Those errors mean that you have not correctly linked OpenGL. Click on the Project menu, and then the Properties item. Then, you go to the Configuration Properties->Linker->Input page, and in the Additional Dependencies box you type in:

opengl32.lib glu32.lib

That should hopefully solve the errors [smile]
