Hello, I am very new to openGL and wanted to get started with a very simple demo with the nehe tutorial. I am able to build and run another project, but it doesnt have glaux.h thats why i assume its an issue with glaux.h. I think i got all the headers but for some reason it says it cant find glaux.h. I dont what I am doing wrong. It must be the way I am including it. I have visual studio c++ 2008 express edition. I have vista.

You're using NeHe.

Seriously though, you aren't doing anything wrong. NeHe's tutorials are completely outdated and should not be used anymore. They will teach you an OpenGL that has been obsolete for many, many years now. Glaux has been deprecated long ago, and is not distributed with modern compilers anymore.

Instead, check out this book and this one. The redbook is also available online, but this is an older version. You can still use it to learn the basics, but if you have the cash, I suggest getting the current edition.
