Hello Michael,

I managed to install Cygwin, its development packages and the opengl package 
on a computer running Vista Home Premium 64-bit edition with SP1 yesterday.
Everything runs fine: the GLUI examples, the helloGLUT test program, and your own 
"main" test program.
Possible causes for your problems:
1- BLODA. See
2- Conflict between the opengl package and the libglut-devel package. If you have both,
try to uninstall the libglut-devel package with the setup program.
3- You have a conflicting copy of one of the dlls installed somewhere.
To help us help you further, you need to:
1- Go to the directory where your "main.exe" is.
2- Run: cygcheck ./main.exe
3- Send the output here. Also _attach_ the output of: cygcheck -s
