I am a beginner in the openGL. I am learning through NeHe openGL productions. I have copied the code of lesson 6
to the Microsoft Visual Studio. After Building the program i am getting the following error:
1>------ Build started: Project: myprj6, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
1>c:\documents and settings\student\my documents\visual studio 2008\projects\myprj6\myprj6\lesson6.cpp(41) : warning C4996: 'fopen': This function or variable may be unsafe. Consider using fopen_s instead. To disable deprecation, use _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS. See online help for details.

I also would like to know where i should copy the Data (Which contains the BMP image) folder given in the lesson6. I tried by copying the folder in C:\Documents and Settings\student\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\myprj6. But could not succeed. Could you please clarify my doubt.
For your first question you can check out the link in my signature below.
Regarding the data folder, if you run it from visual studio then i think the folder location is correct, otherwise it should be in whatever folder the .exe ends up in, well at least that's the default behaviour, your setup could be different so check around a little.
