Well ... actually, it doesn't work for everyone else. Whenever I download PLIB on my home computer (MSVC 6.0 Introductory Edition) I have to remember to remove all the "copy" commands from the post-build step because they cause my compiler to freeze. It freezes so badly, in fact, that I usually have to reboot. But it is such a convenient feature on my computer at work--and presumably to everybody else who uses MSVC--that I really don't want to take it out. It's just one of those things that I have to work around. Perhaps we should put a note about this in the PLIB "README" file.
I've answered Stef separately about this giving the details of my workaround and mentioning that this is an issue for the PLIB mailing list rather than "freeglut". (Note that I've sent it to both places.) I'd also like to echo your note about error reports needing a lot more detail than simply saying "It doesn't work."
