Visual Studio 2005 Express, OpenGL and Glut

Visual Studio 2005 Express does not have SDK. Instead of installing huge SDK what I did to make Visual Studio 2005 Express to run with openGl and Glut is the following.

1. Downloaded and unpacked

2. copied glut32.dll into windows directory

3. created dir GL in include
in my case it was
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\include\GL

4. copied *.h files in there

5. copied *.lib files in lib directory
in my case it was in
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\lib
