What do you mean where do you get it?

The libraries to code with it come with almost every compiler, and the binary to run things under it comes with your OS.

OpenGL isnt beta software neither, it is a complete API for graphics. There are things being added to it by hardware vendors all the time though. The current version of OpenGL is 1.3 on nVidia hardware, not sure about other hardware.

Maybe I''m newer to this than I thought. I went to GLsetup.com and everything to download was beta.Is open GL even a program?

GLSetup is just a program that inspects your graphics hardware and installs the appropriate OpenGL driver for you. It isnt OpenGL itself. OpenGL is a graphics library used by games and applications to render images (both 2D and 3D) to the screen.

Ok Thanks!
Im don't think I have it though because I downloaded a program to develop games called Vulpine (vulpinevision.de) and it wont let me use it because of a file called ARB multitexture_extension and I found out it come with Open GL.

It sounds like your video card doesn''t support OpenGL. This might explain the error message you''re getting.

BTW - the multitexture_extension is part of OpenGL, not a file. I guess that vulpine is looking to make sure your card supports this before continueing.

Try a newer (OpenGL compliant) video card, and see if that works.
