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 
File 'glut32.lib'.  Please help and advise me
 how to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance,

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 
download and install it? If you did install it, then you need to tell your 
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.

How much VISA resources can be opened simultaneously?
How much VISA resources can be opened simultaneously? Hi Alexander, I've never had any problem when opening VISA resources.

(Each GPIB address needs its proper VISA resource). Hope this helps ! Julien Are you having a problem, or is this a theoretical question? There is a limit but it is adjustable.
