  2. Extract the files to your PC.
  3. There are three files of importance: glut32.lib, glut.h, and glut32.dll

  5. If you are using 64-bit Windows Vista or Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2010, the following are the easiest places to put the files:
  6. If you are not an admin on the computer you are working on, put all three files in the project folder next to your code. Change the glut.h include to this: #include "glut.h". All project files must be in the project directory. If you are having troubles contact your lab instructor.
