Bad reloc address 0x0 - linking roblem?

Using GLFW
  • Ruzgud

    I can't get working libraries in Netbeans (first time i'm using third party library).
    Specifically GLEW and GLFW. Also i want to be sure i'm doing things right.

    Windows 7 Pro (64bit)
    Procesor: Intel I7 3820
    GPU: GeForce GTX 660 (2GB GDDR5)

    My approach step by step:
    1) Downloaded minGW-64w with manager:
    Settings: Version 4.8.1, Architecture x64, Thread posix, Exception seh and Build revision 5.
    Path of instalation: c:\minGW\minGW64

    2) Downloaded binary of MSYS and extracted to:

    3) Added values to system path:

    -> To this point all should be fine (C++ projects are working and compiling fine).
    -> Also Netbeans automatically sets all links in options for C/C++ compiler.

    4) Downloaded source code of GLEW, then i executed "make" (just make without any parametres)
    in folder of GLEW with MSYS and moved content of folder:
    ..glew\lib to ../mingw/mingw64\lib
    ..glew\include to ../mingw/mingw64\include

    5) Downloaded binary of GLFW and moved content of folder
    ..glfw\lib to ../mingw/mingw64\lib
    ..glfw\include to ../mingw/mingw64\include

    6) Changed settings of project properties in Netbeans:
    Build->C++ Compiler->General->Include Directories and Headers: ../mingw64/include
    Build->Linker->General->Additional Library Directories: ../mingw/mingw64/lib
    Build->Linker->Libraries: opengl32, glew32 (libglw32.a), glfw3 (libglfw3.a)
    Everything else is default.

    Then i'm trying to run code:

                #include <cstdlib>
                #include <stdio.h>
                #include <stdlib.h>
                #include <GL/glew.h>
                #include <GLFW/glfw3.h>
                using namespace std;
                int main(int argc, char** argv) {
                    if (!glfwInit()){
                        fprintf(stderr, "Failed to initialize GLFW\n");
                        return -1;
                    return 0;

    Returns this error:

    I have also found some topic, but that didn't help: link

    What i have tried so far worth mentioning:
    - Linking and not linking against winmm while compiling glfw,
    - binary files of glfw for 64bit and my own compiled - neither of them worked(both throw same error),
    - different builds of minGW-w64,
    - linkin static and dynamic libraries.

    If anyone know solution, then please help. I know i can just simply include source files to project, but i would like to learn how to properly use libraries. English is my second language, so please excuse my mistakes.
    Thank you for help.
