Take a simple c++ script, with absolutely nothing in other than the following:

#include <windows>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <GL/glut.h>
#include <GL/gl.h>

int main( )
 return 0;

I complile it and get an error specifying " E2337 Only one of a set of overloaded functions can be "C" at line 146" .
I have looked this problem up, but nothing seems to work. Please help! How would I adjust the above code to work, because it is driving me NUTS!!!!!!

Thanks, Nick.

i think the problem is in your header files




check line 146 in both of those files.

I downloaded glut.h from here:
(There was no gl.h)

It compiled just fine, after adding the .h to the windows include
