SDL or GLUT with windows Vista question

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am developing a 2D game with SDL and Opengl. Doing that together with a friend. I am on XP and he is running Vista. SDL on Vista = not working. So we have a communication problem. Should I wait for SDL update to Vista? (How long can that be?) Or should I go to GLUT. (Rather a step back?) And yes ther are other lib's out there but I prefer to stick with lib's that are common in use. What are You thinking? What would You do? Thanks, Renran

I make the game in XP and then he is testing the output
on Vista.
And he has problems making it running on Vista.
But why?
Which compiler are you using? Perhaps your friend need to install the redist package for your compiler?

We could help better if you fully describe what is happening on Vista. Where do things go wrong? Compile time? Link time? Run time?
If it's run time, then you have to make sure that all of the necessary dll's are in the same folder as the executable. For my games, these are usually SDL.dll, SDL_image.dll, SDL_ttf.dll, libfreetype-6.dll, libpng12-0.dll, and zlib1.dll.
