Getting output in Visual Studio 2015 for OpenGL code?


  • Hello there.

    I'm new to Visual Studio. I'm currently using VS 2015. I'm trying to get the output for an OpenGL code. I'm getting the following error message : 

    "Cube.exe - Application Error

    The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application."

    I even tried a fix for this error by downloading 0xc000007b_win(x64).zip and extracting the contents and pasting them to their respective folders i.e., System32 and SysWOW64. But the error is still persistent. 

    I got an output for a simple "Hello World" program using C, C++, C# in the VS itself. I'm not able to troubleshoot the error for the OpenGL coding.

    What did I do wrong? What are the necessary software/packages required for OpenGL? 

    Please Help!

  • Hi AmrutaMH,

    According to your description, first please make sure you have configured the OpenGL in VS2015 successfully.

    I suggest that you could download the following NuGet packet to try again.
