GLUT and Visual Studio installation on Windows

On the request of one of our FB reader, we are going to tell you how to install OpenGL and run the program on Windows. We are going to learn GLUT and Visual Studio installation on Windows.

First Download Microsoft Visual Studio and install it on your computer or PC. This is very easy, nothing to do - a simple installation but please check out the space it need. You can Download latest version of Visual Studio for your work but lower version can works also. I work on Visual Studio 98, it is light and easy to install, take less space on hard drive.

Next thing is to install GLUT on Windows. You must have the GLUT and other files with you. Then these file must be copied to proper location, where Visual Studio is installed in program files. There are three types of file - DLL files, Header files and Lib files. These file should copied to desire folder in the following manner.
  • DLL files with extension .dll copy to "Bin" folder.
  • Header files with extension .h copy to "Include"folder.
  • Lib files with extension .lib copy to "Lib" folder.
You may find the folders in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio". Download all the required GLUT files. I hope this Helps in GLUT installation on windows.
