Fatal Error LNK 1104: Cannont Open File 'glut32.lib'

```Hi all,
I have Visual C++.NET 2003 in my Windows XP Pro PC. I executed the attached
OpenGL program "POINTSZ" and I got a fatal error  LNK 1104: Cannont Open
how to solve this problem.

Boy, there are a lot of new OpenGL programmers lately. This is GOOD, but it is a
slight pain...

Anyway, to the problem: This is a compiler problem, and it is telling you
EXACTLY what the problem is: it cannot find the glut32.lib library. Did you
compiler WHERE it can find it. To make things simple, I copied the GLUT headers
and library directly to my MSVC include and library folders, and the glut32.dll
file to my Windows system32 folder.

You might need to install GLUT (it isn't really part
of OpenGL).

In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know
that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,'
and then they actually change their minds and you never
hear that old view from them again.  They really do it.
It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists
are human and change is sometimes painful.  But it happens
every day.  I cannot recall the last time something like
that happened in politics or religion.
