The last week I have been wandering through the planes of GL bewilderment trying to get a library to work with Microsoft Visual C++ 2010, so I can start learning how to implement graphics into my programs.

The three tutorials I have tried:
NeHe --(didn't work at all)
Learning Modern 3D Graphics Programming--(trouble with unrecognized binary files)
Cprogramming.com --(just an insane amount of library problems)

Is there a combination of IDE and library that is compatible with Windows 7? If so, what is this combination that has been eluding me? And, where is a tutorial that works with Windows 7?

I know how to program in C++, but I am not a computer scientist, I study Biochemistry. So, if there are advanced C++ concepts or programming concepts outside of C++ that I need to know in order to get this all set up, please refer me to somewhere I can learn them, because I will not know them. I am willing to learn though!

Figuring out how to get started in graphic programming is harder than understanding physical chemistry! Is this mind blowingly frustrating process what everyone else has to go through?
