I may have solved my problem.
Overview: I am running Python 2.7.1 x64 on Windows 7 x64. I downloaded PyOpenGL from Chris Gohlke's very convenient web site: http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/
, specifically, I used "PyOpenGL-3.0.1.win-amd64-py2.7.exe".
Here are the steps I went through to have something working:
2. This package came with a MSVC2008 solution. I modified it (very simple) to compile a x64 Release version.
3. Next I looked in my PyOpenGL site-packages folder and clicked into the DLLS subfolder. I renamed the file "glut32.dll" to "glut32.dll.BAK" and renamed "freeglut.dll" to "freeglut.dll.BAK".
4. Next I copied my newly compiled files "freeglut.dll" and "freeglut.lib" from the above-mentioned Release folder to the PyOpenGL DLLS folder.
This worked for me this morning and I hope maybe this info is helpful to others down the road.
