 return 0;
}

RUnning Borland CBuilderX and I want to do some OpenGL using the Glut libraries v3.7

It should tell you what file it's referring to at line 146.

Also, I notice that your window header file does not have a *.h extension.
#include <windows>

Yeah, it still doesn't work even with the *.h. Same error! It is the Glut.h file which is the problem, but how do I go about solving the error?

What type of file is your code in?

Are you using a *.C file or a *.CPP file.

You should be using a *.CPP file.

Hi,
I've commented out this line from glut.h
extern _CRTIMP void __cdecl exit(int);
