GLUT exit redefinition error


The stdlib.h which ships with the recent versions of Visual Studio has a different (and conflicting) definition of the exit() function. It clashes with the definition in glut.h.


Override the definition in glut.h with that in stdlib.h. Place the stdlib.h line above the glut.h line in your code.

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <GL/glut.h>
