glxgears for Windows (XP+)

Unread post by K4sum1 »

I've wanted to have glxgears on Windows, but there exists no compiled versions of it. So I went and compiled it myself.

This works on Windows XP and later, maybe 2000, not sure. It was built with Visual Studio 2012 since that was the oldest version supported by the code. I would like to have a version that doesn't rely on VC++ and runs on anything, but I'm not the person to make it.

It's a "benchmark", it's main purpose is to check if you have working 3D acceleration, in this case OpenGL. I wanted it specifically for Vista driver testing myself, but you can use it for whatever.
R3n who?
