The NeHe tutorials are an introductory; they don''t teach you everything. If you know the Win32 API well enough, the window setup tutorial makes a lot of sense. If you don''t like the Win32 API, try using something like GLUT or SDL (his tutorials should be ported to one or both of those).

Make sure glut32.dll is in your path. ie:
in \windows\system on 95/98/me or
in \windows\system32 on nt/2k/xp

Also make sure the dll in your path is the same version as the .lib file you''re using. I''m not sure whether there are different versions of those, however, because i''ve never used OpenGL.
