aint it comes with your graphic card video drivers? :)

Only the implementation comes with the driver, not the developer tools needed to use it (headers, libraries and such).

While downloading the gl headers is great, the big problem with later versions of OpenGL require you to load all new functions directly from the drive (search: wglGetProcAddress) using the stubs provided in the header. To avoid all this headache, try downloading/installing GLEW (OpenGL Extension Wrangler) at http://glew.sourceforge.net/. This library replaces the need to call wglGetProcAddress manually, and instead gives you simple function to initialize all extensions in your card. I highly recommend it. Good luck.
