Downloading GLUT (provided by
GLUT is not included in regular installations
of Visual Studio/C++. So you have to download it and install it
You can easily find it with Google. Look for "GLUT Download". Then
for the zip file containing the binary version of glut 3.7 for Windows.
Extract the files to the directories as especified in the text file
in that zip file. The paths may vary.
If it is a CoC machine where you have no write permissions you may need
to install glut locally. Usually you can get away by copying the
glut32.lib and glut.h files to the directory where you have the code.
standard location for glut.h is in a subdirectory called GL/ of any
in the list of path to search for header files (capital letters matter
Unix/Linux systems). If you cannot copy the dll to the system32
of your Windows directory you will need a copy of it wherever the
executable is executed.
The page http://www.cc.gatech.edu/classes/AY2002/cs4451a_summer/wingl.html
contains more details. Although it does not tell you about the
possibility of installing locally in case that you have no permissions.
