LNK 1104 error with glut32.lib

I'm trying to recover MSVC.net to a new laptop to run an open source flight
simulation program and have suceeded in building the required plib and
simgear projects. I am nearing completion and have recieved the LNK 1104
error, "cannot find glut32.lib" file. when the file is actually located in
the C:\windows\system32 directory. I have this system running on a
workstation at the office and remember seeing this during that system set-up
but cannot remember the solution to this recurring event. can anyone point
me in the right direction?

Thanks,

..lib files are not looked up using the system path, they're looked up using
the library path in Visual Studio. Open up the preferences for the VC++
directories setting and either add the directory where you placed the .lib
file or see which directories are there and put the .lib in one of those.
