Today is my first day with freeglut - so if I hope you will forgive me =
am bringing up something that has already been discussed earlier =
find any reference in the mail archives). I have downloaded RC7 & =
the freeglut & freeglut_static libraries & dll using Visual C++ .NET =
WinXP Prof. The compilation of the libraries & dlls works fine & I've =
them into their respective folders under windows & VC++.=20
Now, when I try & run the demos they work perfectly when I run them from
within the VC++ IDE (F5 or Ctrl+F5) - HOWEVER when I try & run the =
demos directly from Explorer, the demos simply crash.
Has anyone else experienced this, or is it just me ?
I had compiled the freeglut libraries & dll in Release mode (which is =
am using now) - but also tried Debug mode with no change.
Any input would be appreciated.

The demo programs that depend on data files are not graceful
about failing to locate them. MSVC is somewhat nonstandard
to the extent that binaries land in different directories
to the sources. Try copying the data files into the Release/
and/or Debug/ directories before launching them in explorer.
