Hi eddyhalim,

what errors ?
eddyhalimAuthor Commented:
I think the error is
"cannot find _main"
"cannot compile cube.exe"

actually i just compile a opengl cube.c example but it's  appear error.

Open GL are an functionbased language and thats why it dosent mix very well whith C++. However you must have a main function in OpenGL. OpenGL loops the main and you should have all you calls in it.
Try doing something like this.

Define classes like you use to, and call them from your main function. You will have a nic mix of C, C++ and OpenGL.

The Errorcode "cannot compile cube.exe"
are generated becourse you dont have any main.
