There is no OpenGL SDK to download. The GL.h header is shipped with the Windows SDK/Platform SDK's by Microsoft. Keep in mind these are very very old and do not expose much functionality beyond OpenGL 1.1/2.

You access new functionality yourself by loading each new function using wglGetProcAddress which can be very irritating. To make things easy, do a google search for GLEE or another a similar opengl extension library. They take care of loading all the extensions in a simple manner. Hope this helps.

(1) Do you have a specific target platform in mind (Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, Linux for i386, amd64, ARM, PPC, ant farms, etc etc etc)?

(2) Do have have a specific OpenGL in mind (OpenGL 1, 2, 3, OpenGL ES 1, 2)?

(3) Do you need commercial support?
