Basic window causes visual studio to freeze

I’m on windows 10, and I’ve been trying to get just a basic window running, what happens when I try to launch it with visual studio by pressing F5, the entire program just freezes and I have to force close it, the same happens when I compile it under g++.

I installed windows xp under a virtual machine, installed everything needed to use visual studio 2010 express, did everything the same, and it runs there, so I don’t know if windows 10 is the cause, or what. I tested it with both 2013 and 2015 community editions of visual studio and I get the same thing, there are no linker errors, nothing when I build it. so if anyone has any ideas, I’m all ears

Update: I figured it out, it was my antivirus software blocking the exe to load, which didn’t occur to me because it didn’t throw anything up, so once I disabled that, it actually works.

Another user has observed an issue with Windows 10 not installing the right drivers:

Have you checked the drivers, and perhaps tried using an extension viewer such as glView to see if that works?
