GLUT with Visual Studio C++ Express Edition

Sunday, October 29, 2006 Posted by Ismail Habib , 90 comments
OpenGL is one of the most popular graphics library nowadays, we may even say that it is already a standard. This article below explains how to use GLUT with Visual Studio C++ Express Edition:

This document details the steps to get GLUT working along with Visual C++ Express Edition.
  1. Download and install Visual C++ Express Edition from
  2. The default install of Visual C++ Express Edition builds for the .Net platform. We'll need to build for the Windows platform since OpenGL and GLUT are not yet fully supported under .Net. For this we'll need the Microsoft Platform SDK.
  3. Download and install Microsoft Platform SDK. Visual C++ Express Edition will need to be configured to build for Windows platform. All these instructions are available here: (no longer valid, use instead)
  4. Now, we'll need GLUT. Download and unzip Nate Robin's Windows port of GLUT from here:
  5. Add glut.h to the GL directory in the platform SDK/include.
  6. In your Visual C++ Express Edition project properties -> Additional Linker Directories add the directory which has glut.lib
  7. Add the glut.dll to the Windows System32 directory.
  8. Your program which uses GLUT or OpenGL should compile under Visual C++ Express Edition now.

    Actually you don't have to do "In your Visual C++ Express Edition project properties -> Additional Linker Directories add the directory which has glut.lib"

    you can just past the glut32.lib to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\lib" (assuming you have same installation directory as i do.)

    after that you can compile your OGL program.

    for windoze vista user, by default there is a opengl32.dll in the system32 directory, it is a new release i guess. so you do not have to put the opengl32.dll from to the directory.

  7. GLUT can be configured to work with Visual C++.

  8. It is also important to become updated with the latest SEO techniques to stay ahead in the competition.

  9. GLUT has also resolved its compatability problems with C++ in which GLUT libraries are usable in applications.

  10. I'm using Vista 64-bit and tried GLUT with the older version of Visual Studio. Fortunately, I'm works well without any trouble.

  11. The OpenGL software is even used by consoles, but has shifted from Direct3D and DirectX.
