I'm curious to know how do you install tesseract and leptonica for opencv on windows.

Do you use cppan ?

Can you build leptonica with cmake and use it after in tesseract and opencv ? --> If yes without changed the cmakelists I'm very interested

Thanks for your answer

if you want to build leptonica using opencv source you have to modify cmakelists.txt and then use this

yes, they are using the latest stable version. The libraries from vcpkg are build directly from repro source

@VxW link is too old. A binary version is available here but cppan is necessary

"it will save you hours of work installing open source software on windows." : 5 minutes leptonica and tesseract with a good cmakelists.txt and git-bash

if you are happy with an alpha version then do it. However, next time please add in your question which version numbers and developer system do you have

My problem it is not to install tesseract on my computer but how to write a tutorial for opencv user like this one. May be communauty got a better solution than mine

@VxW I don't understand why you write 'next time please add.... Version number and developper system I don't need it Just windows Your answer is for visual studio and you need vcpkg I upvote for this answer
