I've tried everything to get OpenGL 3.2 to render with CG shaders in my game engine but I have had no luck. So I decided to make a bare minimal project but still shaders won't work. In theory my test project should just render a red triangle but it is white because the shader is not doing anything.

I'll post the code here:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <vector>
#include <string>
#include <GL/glew.h>
#include <Cg/cg.h>
#include <Cg/cgGL.h>
#include <SDL2/SDL.h>
 
int main()
{
    SDL_Window *mainwindow;
    SDL_GLContext maincontext;
 
    SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO);
 
    SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_CONTEXT_MAJOR_VERSION, 3);
    SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_CONTEXT_MINOR_VERSION, 2);
    SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER, 1);
    SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_DEPTH_SIZE, 24);
 
    mainwindow = SDL_CreateWindow("Test", SDL_WINDOWPOS_CENTERED, SDL_WINDOWPOS_CENTERED, 512, 512, SDL_WINDOW_OPENGL | SDL_WINDOW_SHOWN);
 
    maincontext = SDL_GL_CreateContext(mainwindow);
 
    glewExperimental = GL_TRUE;
    glewInit();
 
    _CGcontext* cgcontext;
    cgcontext = cgCreateContext();
    cgGLRegisterStates(cgcontext);
 
    CGerror error;
    CGeffect effect;
    const char* string;
    std::string shader;
 
    shader =
            "struct VS_INPUT"
            "{"
            "   float3 pos              : ATTR0;"
            "};"
 
            "struct FS_INPUT"

            "{"

            "   Out.pos = float4( In.pos, 1.0f );"
            "   Out.tex = float2( 0.0f, 0.0f );"
            "   return Out;"
            "}"
 
            "FS_OUTPUT FS( FS_INPUT In )"
            "{"
            "   FS_OUTPUT Out;"
            "   Out.color = float4(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);"

    effect = cgCreateEffect(cgcontext, shader.c_str(), NULL);

    if(error)
    {

        fprintf(stderr, "Shader compiler: %s\n", string);
    }

    unsigned int m_vaoID;
    unsigned int m_vboID;
 
    glGenVertexArrays(1, &m_vaoID);
    glBindVertexArray(m_vaoID);
 
    glGenBuffers(1, &m_vboID);
 
    glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_vboID);
    glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 9 * sizeof(GLfloat), vert, GL_STATIC_DRAW);
 
    glVertexAttribPointer(0, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, 0);
    glEnableVertexAttribArray(0);
 
    CGtechnique tech = cgGetFirstTechnique( effect );
    CGpass pass = cgGetFirstPass(tech);
    while (pass)
    {
        cgSetPassState(pass);
        glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, 3);
        cgResetPassState(pass);
        pass = cgGetNextPass(pass);
    }
 
    glDisableVertexAttribArray( 0 );
 
    glBindVertexArray(0);
 
    delete[] vert;
 
    glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0);
    glDeleteBuffers(1, &m_vboID);
    glDeleteVertexArrays(1, &m_vaoID);
 
    SDL_GL_SwapWindow(mainwindow);
    SDL_Delay(2000);
 
    SDL_GL_DeleteContext(maincontext);
    SDL_DestroyWindow(mainwindow);
    SDL_Quit();
 
    return 0;
}

What am I doing wrong?
