OpenGL - Crashes in IDE - Runs OK in Windows

OpenGL - Crashes in IDE - Runs OK in Windows

A Neophyte's Question:

This is my first experience with OpenGL and I think I'd better come to grips
with this problem before going on...
Using the C++ BUILDER DEVELOPERS GUIDE by Hollingworth, et al, I loaded
their Chapter 26 Solar System sample project.
When I run this in the Borland IDE I get repeated interruptions with this
The offending operation is apparently:  move ax, gs: [ecx]

However, the compiled executable file runs great without any interruptions!
How is it that it can crash in the IDE and run OK outside the IDE?



1. Windows 95 / OPENGL Run Time Crash with Delphi

I have written several test programs with the OpenGL Delphi Header
files that were ported by Richard hansen at Artemis Alliance.  He did
a wonderful job and the .pas units work flawlessly at design time.  At
run time, however, I am getting intermittent Floating point errors,
usually immediately following glRotate(x) or glTranslate(x).  I feel
that the overflow is probably in the Microsoft gl library.

Has anyone else experienced this problem either in C++ or Delphi?  Are
there any suggestions for work arounds or bug fixes?  I am currently
running Version 1.1 of the libraries, Version 2.0 of Delphi and am
using the OpenGL SuperBible as my programming guide (A great book).

Thanks for your help,
