Trying to run this simple example here:
http://blog.vrplumber.com/index.php?/archives/2324-Sphere-rendering-with-numpy....html

I get:

    I installed PIL, but I still get:

    You are missing GLUT, though why I can't say, as it is supposed to be installed with PyOpenGL in the windows installer.

    This is Windows 7 x64 with 64-bit Python. The PyOpenGL installer does not work with 64 bit Python (no installers do. see: http://bugs.python.org/issue6792 )

    Instead I did: easy_install pyopengl

    Then you will need a 64-bit build of GLUT, I'm guessing. FreeGLUT or GLUT32 should work.

    Oh, and check if you have glu32.dll in Windows/SysWOW64 (if not copy it from Windows/System32), it can help (as i 64bit system there are too folders for libs, and sometimes Win do not care to check them both)

    Sorry. It should be freeglut.dll. import statement is good. Check freeglut website to get compiled Win libraries, but remeber to copy them also to SysWOW64.
