Additional details about glut32.dll
Glut32.Dll is a file used with the OpenGL Utility (GLUT for short) image programming language. It lives in a Windows user's system folder and aids communication between the code and the system. Specifically, when a user writes code, it is stored internally as an EXE program file. This file can run the coded process, but does not contain the means to translate that data into a form one can see on screen. Glut32.Dll assists in this translation. Anyone not programming in GLUT would not need this file.
