Visual C++ comes with all the files you need to program opengl. Just include the right files and libs then start programming. You can read about it in the vc help files but there is really not much to it. The only thing you need to be aware of is the wiggle functions are differnt then on a silicon. They are well documented in the help files, and there are many c++ libs that are quite easy to use.
