hello In my computer, i''ve got OPENGL32.DLL in one folder and opengl32.dll in another, and they have a size difference of almost 100kbytes. I was wondering why thre are two kinds of the same files. ..I still dont get the difference between c and c++...

There''s a different OpenGL32.dll for every video chipset, as I understand it.

Nope. It''s an MCD (the first MCD that Windows ever had, from what I''ve read) to the real hardware connected OpenGL implementation written by the video card manufacturer. For example, NVidia uses something like "nvogl.dll" and it gets called from the MCD after it''s registered with Windows (by installing the drivers).
