Maybe I just haven''t looked hard enough, but I just spent two hours looking for where I can download the ogl api with headers, etc. Anyone want to point me in the right direction? Thanks =)

If U have M$Visual C++ 6 then U already have Opengl api, (headers in .../include/gl/(gl.h glu.h glaux.h) and libraries in .../lib/(opengl32.lib glu32.lib glaux.lib)). And in MSDN shipped with VC is help for this api. I don''t know if this can help U but there is some link for opengl api from M$ http://download.microsoft.com/download/win95upg/info/1/W95/EN-US/Opengl95.exe

Awesome thanks, I didn''t know it was packaged with VC.

My development machine is currently running Windows 2000 and I''m using the Visual Studio .NET platform for development.

Thanks again =)

hmm I did a search on my system and there are no openGL headers or libs installed. I stated my OS and development platform above.

Is there anywhere else I could get these?

Thanks =)

they are definitely bundled with studio .NET

here''s my path to them:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio.NET\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include\gl\

lib:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Vc7\PlatformSDK\lib

glaux is deprecated. Use it at your own risk.

quote:
From the jargon file

Said of a program or feature that is considered obsolescent and in the process of being phased out, usually in favor of a specified replacement. Deprecated features can, unfortunately, linger on for many years. This term appears with distressing frequency in standards documents when the committees writing the documents realize that large amounts of extant (and presumably happily working) code depend on the feature(s) that have passed out of favor.

OpenGL information.

OpenGL Reference Manual

OpenGL Programmer''s Guide

OpenGL Platform SDK @ MSDN

should be enough to get you started....

Just don't use it - it's deprecated!

You should be able to link to opengl32.lib and glu32.lib, #include <gl/gl.h> and <gl/glu.h>, then you'll be set.

odd... i guess i''ll have to check out the cds more thoroughly as I did a system search and didn''t find any of them. I am using the Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect edition, which cost a nice bit of cash so I''m hoping to get this working as soon as possible.

And to the person who specified the link to www.opengl.org, since you say it is located there maybe you should give me a direct link because I looked for a long time before even starting this thread and it wasn''t there.

Thanks for the responses guys.
