This package was submitted prior to moderation and has not been approved. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

GLFW is an Open Source, multi-platform library for creating windows with OpenGL contexts and receiving input and events. It is easy to integrate into existing applications and does not lay claim to the main loop.

GLFW is written in C and has native support for Windows, OS X and many Unix-like systems using the X Window System, such as Linux and FreeBSD.

GLFW is licensed under the zlib/libpng license.

This package installs the library in a 'brew' like fashion. It is installed inside the Chocolatey Install folder under the folders 'msvc110-32', 'msvc120-32', 'msvc110-64', 'msvc120-64', 'include'. The msvc folders include binaries built for Visual Studio. The include folder includes library headers.

To install GLFW 3, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install glfw3

To upgrade GLFW 3, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade glfw3

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.


This package has no dependencies.
