Hello I've been looking for Open GL 1.4 (with include files and library files) or later for windows but the latest I have found is 1.3 (for dev-c++). I have been looking at and and all over the place. Does anyone know where to find it?

Use OpenGL extensions. Windows only contains support for OpenGL 1.1. The OpenGL extensions handle the rest.

OpenGL later than version 1.1 is unsupported by Microsoft :-( The official method to use a newer OpenGL version is to make your own function prototypes and retrieve function pointers using wglGetProcAddress(LPCSTR name). Fortunately there exist some open source libraries, that do this annoying task. One of these is glew ( Those libraries also simplify the usage of OpenGL extensions and provide an easy way to check, if the installed graphics card supports this extension.
