# OpenGL GLFW Linking errors Visual Studio 10

## 16 posts in this topic

I'm having trouble setting up GLFW on Visual Studio 10.0 I was following this guys tutorial. However I am still getting linking errors

1>GLFW.lib(window.obj) : error LNK2005: __glfwClearWindowHints already defined in window.obj 1>GLFW.lib(window.obj) : error LNK2005: __glfwClearInput already defined in window.obj

1>MSVCRTD.lib(cinitexe.obj) : warning LNK4098: defaultlib 'msvcrt.lib' conflicts with use of other libs; use /NODEFAULTLIB:library

I have tried googling the errors but I havent found much help. I have linked opengl32/lib and glu32.lib in the linker settings. I have also linked the appropriate folders for include and lib. I downloaded and linked both the win32 binaries and the original zip from the GLFW site.


#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <GL/glew.h>
#define GLFW_DLL
#include <GL/glfw.h>
#pragma comment(lib,"glfwdll.lib")
#include <GL/glm/glm.hpp>

int main()
{
glfwInit();
glfwSleep( 1.0 );
glfwTerminate();
}


Any help is appreciated..h>.h>.h>

Try including glfw before you include glew.

Also try cleaning and rebuilding the project and see if it works.

okay, now i get this [code]1>c:\users\dakota\documents\visual studio 2010\projects\spawngl\main.cpp(13): warning C4005: 'GLFW_DLL' : macro redefinition 1> command-line arguments : see previous definition of 'GLFW_DLL' 1>c:\users\dakota\desktop\glew-1.9.0-win32\glew-1.9.0\include\gl\glew.h(84): fatal error C1189: #error : gl.h included before glew.h 1>[/code]

include glew before glfw, and comment the GLFW_DLL part, and see if it works.

Done. Now I'm getting the same errors as before.

[code]1>glfw.lib(window.obj) : error LNK2005: __glfwClearWindowHints already defined in window.obj[/code]

etc.

Call glewInit() before glfwInit().

If it doesn't work, maybe you should consider stop using glew, and try something else.

Tired that, and I believe it's GLFW that is acting up, according to the errors.

You're not linking to static glfw.lib and DLL at the same time somehow? Also consider switching to GLFW 3.0 and compiling it yourself for your platform. It's almost release-ready, I'm using it for a year and didn't have a single problem (except for name-changes that happened during development of lib, but its just minor inconvenience).

By the way, any reason why you're not linking GLFW as static lib? Edited by noizex

Not sure what that means, I'm kinda new to OpenGL and Visual Studio. Explain? :)

Do you think that would work for [url=http://open.gl/context]this[/url] turorial? If so then I'm all ears.

Again, I'm not sure how to do this. help?

Take a look at my glew + glfw sample here: https://github.com/dougbinks/glewfw for a working example.

Remember to set the example as the start project before running it, and if you have any issues let me know - I'll be travelling for a day or so but should be able to help after that. Note that if you don't have git you can just click on the ZIP button to download a zip of the current code.

Thanks! I set example as the startup, and the build succeeds, however I get an example.exe error window afterwards. :/

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000000d). Click OK to close the application."

I tried setting glewfw as the startup after this and I got...

"Unable to start application

C:\blablabla\glewfw\debug\glewfw.dll"

Okay so I followed [url=http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14178588/glfw-linker-errors-in-visual-studio-10]this guys[/url] tutorial this time.

I was able to build all of the projects for GLFW 3.0

So now I'm going in and editing them while following the tutorial on [url]open.gl/context[/url]

More specifically I took the "triangle" project and started it from scratch to follow said tutorial.

But Functions like glfwSleep() and glfwOpenWindowHint() are still undefined. Are these not used in GLFW 3.0?

Can I not use GLFW 3.0 for this tutorial?

Have a look at GLFW 3.0 examples to see how to setup basic window. Yes, some things are gone in GLFW3, including these 2 functions you mentioned.

Use glfwWindowHint instead, and threading support was removed from GLFW. Best look at provided examples/tests and into code - thats best reference for now (although there was a link to PDF with GLFW3 reference, it may be a bit outdated but its better than nothing, I will post it when I find it)

Got it, glfwCreateWindow(); seems to be the new sensation.

Thanks for the help. Is there anything else I should know before I continue with GLFW 3.0?

Also, is it possible to use two libraries at the same time? Say SFML 2.0 and GLFW 3.0? Are there any advantages to this?

Sorry for the bombardment of questions, I admire your knowledge and I truly appreciate they help you (and everyone else) has given me.

Onward with OpenGL!

Not really, just make sure to work on most recent source and keep in mind that API still changes so you may find yourself in a situation where some function name was renamed.

Also, is it possible to use two libraries at the same time? Say SFML 2.0 and GLFW 3.0? Are there any advantages to this?

Not sure if its possible, but its rather pointless as these two libraries have duplicate functionality. Both are used to create GL context, but SFML offers much more (just check the site for all the modules it has). GLFW is solely focused on getting you a GL context and handles events in a created window(s). It does nothing more, which is nice if you want to do things yourself rather than rely on a big library to do everything for you (SFML).

If you really want to learn OpenGL I guess its worth going minimal and learn the basics rather than have a library do it for you (SFML has GL wrappers for most functionality so you can work with it without using the low level API at all).

[Edited as miss-read some of the original post]

Do you have the call stack from the debug session of what happened when trying to run the example - I've run this on several computers with no problems so it might be something simple for me to fix if I can get enough information. Edited by dougbinks

• So it's been a while since I took a break from my whole creating a planet in DX11. Last time around I got stuck on fixing a nice LOD.
A week back or so I got help to find this:
https://github.com/sp4cerat/Planet-LOD
In general this is what I'm trying to recreate in DX11, he that made that planet LOD uses OpenGL but that is a minor issue and something I can solve. But I have a question regarding the code
He gets the position using this row
vec4d pos = b.var.vec4d["position"]; Which is then used further down when he sends the variable "center" into the drawing function:
if (pos.len() < 1) pos.norm(); world::draw(vec3d(pos.x, pos.y, pos.z));
Inside the draw function this happens:
draw_recursive(p3[0], p3[1], p3[2], center); Basically the 3 vertices of the triangle and the center of details that he sent as a parameter earlier: vec3d(pos.x, pos.y, pos.z)
Now onto my real question, he does vec3d edge_center[3] = { (p1 + p2) / 2, (p2 + p3) / 2, (p3 + p1) / 2 }; to get the edge center of each edge, nothing weird there.
But this is used later on with:
vec3d d = center + edge_center[i]; edge_test[i] = d.len() > ratio_size; edge_test is then used to evaluate if there should be a triangle drawn or if it should be split up into 3 new triangles instead. Why is it working for him? shouldn't it be like center - edge_center or something like that? Why adding them togheter? I asume here that the center is the center of details for the LOD. the position of the camera if stood on the ground of the planet and not up int he air like it is now.

Full code can be seen here:
https://github.com/sp4cerat/Planet-LOD/blob/master/src.simple/Main.cpp
If anyone would like to take a look and try to help me understand this code I would love this person. I'm running out of ideas on how to solve this in my own head, most likely twisted it one time to many up in my head

• I googled around but are unable to find source code or details of implementation.
What keywords should I search for this topic?
Things I would like to know:
A. How to ensure that partially covered pixels are rasterized?
Apparently by expanding each triangle by 1 pixel or so, rasterization problem is almost solved.
But it will result in an unindexable triangle list without tons of overlaps. Will it incur a large performance penalty?
B. A-buffer like bitmask needs a read-modiry-write operation.
How to ensure proper synchronizations in GLSL?
GLSL seems to only allow int32 atomics on image.
C. Is there some simple ways to estimate coverage on-the-fly?
In case I am to draw 2D shapes onto an exisitng target:
1. A multi-pass whatever-buffer seems overkill.
2. Multisampling could cost a lot memory though all I need is better coverage.
Besides, I have to blit twice, if draw target is not multisampled.

Hello

I am working on a recent project and I have been learning how to code in C# using OpenGL libraries for some graphics. I have achieved some quite interesting things using TAO Framework writing in Console Applications, creating a GLUT Window. But my problem now is that I need to incorporate the Graphics in a Windows Form so I can relate the objects that I render with some .NET Controls.

To deal with this problem, I have seen in some forums that it's better to use OpenTK instead of TAO Framework, so I can use the glControl that OpenTK libraries offer. However, I haven't found complete articles, tutorials or source codes that help using the glControl or that may insert me into de OpenTK functions. Would somebody please share in this forum some links or files where I can find good documentation about this topic? Or may I use another library different of OpenTK?

Thanks!

• Hello, I have been working on SH Irradiance map rendering, and I have been using a GLSL pixel shader to render SH irradiance to 2D irradiance maps for my static objects. I already have it working with 9 3D textures so far for the first 9 SH functions.
In my GLSL shader, I have to send in 9 SH Coefficient 3D Texures that use RGBA8 as a pixel format. RGB being used for the coefficients for red, green, and blue, and the A for checking if the voxel is in use (for the 3D texture solidification shader to prevent bleeding).
My problem is, I want to knock this number of textures down to something like 4 or 5. Getting even lower would be a godsend. This is because I eventually plan on adding more SH Coefficient 3D Textures for other parts of the game map (such as inside rooms, as opposed to the outside), to circumvent irradiance probe bleeding between rooms separated by walls. I don't want to reach the 32 texture limit too soon. Also, I figure that it would be a LOT faster.
Is there a way I could, say, store 2 sets of SH Coefficients for 2 SH functions inside a texture with RGBA16 pixels? If so, how would I extract them from inside GLSL? Let me know if you have any suggestions ^^.

EDIT: I thought this was restricted to Attribute-Created GL contexts, but it isn't, so I rewrote the post.
Hey guys, whenever I call SwapBuffers(hDC), I get a crash, and I get a "Too many posts were made to a semaphore." from Windows as I call SwapBuffers. What could be the cause of this?
Update: No crash occurs if I don't draw, just clear and swap.
