There have been reports of problems with GLFW on Vista, but due to privacy
issues I’m unable to use Vista and thus cannot test GLFW there.

Hopefully there’s someone here who can give a better answer.

I tried to solve the reported problems once, but the truth is that I couldn’t
reproduce them. I have been using GLFW in windows vista in small graphic apps
without problems. (window management + user input, no threads).

Even thought, if you encounter any problems or face some of the reported ones
that I could not reproduce, please, report it. I would be happy to try to fix
them and contribute at least with one line of code to my favorite OpenGL
framework. :slight_smile:

I have a basic use of GLFW ( same as Artblanc, input and windowing, no
threads ) on Vista, and never got a problem. ( Mingw + GLFW 2.6 )

I run windows 7, and i don’t have any problems with glfw at all. It has been
working really great. One of my testers runs vista, and he’s not reporting any
problems either.
