Freeglut on windows 7 without admin privileges
« on: November 09, 2017, 04:10:22 pm »
I need to install freeglut on a windows 7 lab machine that I don't have admin access to. (I can't install things, nor put things in program files)

The pc already have visual studio 2010, I downloaded codeblocks-16.01mingw-nosetup.zip, now how to make freeglut work on a pc without admin privileges?

This is not really an Code::Blocks type question.

I suggest asking on a site that supports the compiler you wish to use.

This site does *not* support any compiler.

I want to use gcc and it is installed. I asked my question on this forum because of this

http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,22175.new.html

after asking that question I learnt that I can use global variables on linux to point to glut, I wonder if I could do the same on windows without having to install freeglut in c:/program filles
