Hello, I have a problem with Eclipse.
I can't run any C/C++ project using Eclipse. It says "Launch failed. Binary not found."
Yes, I built the project, yes the binaries exist in "Debug" and "Release" folder.
Either way, I've set paths too.

It says,
How can I resolve "cannot find -lglut32" error in description.
I've also attached an image of error in console.

What could be the problem?
Thank you for the attention.

I don't use OpenGL but some observations:
1) The error is a link error; no executable is being produced, so what do you mean you have it?
2) The GCC loader (ld) is saying that libglut32 can't be found in the library search path

You either need to specify where it is by using the -L<path> linker option or maybe it's not installed.
If you need to install it: https://users.cs.jmu.edu/bernstdh/web/common/help/cpp_mingw-glut-setup.php

As an aside, spaces in path elements can cause problems.
You might want to consider changing the project name.
