OpenGL & Win95 installation problems

I have not been able to compile any sample OpenGL code.  I am a C novice, but I thought I had the .lib, .h and .dll files in the appropriate directories.  When building  programs with Visual C++ that call the GL functions, I get linker errors (unresolved external symbol).  The borland C environment that I was accustomed to will NOT work.  Am I missing something obvious?

You should specify opengl32.lib under the menu Build/Settings/Link. By default, the compiler doesn't link it.
