Hey there,

I want to build OpenCV from source on Windows and use the python bindings. My machine runs Windows 10, 64bit and have Anaconda installed with Python 3.6.4.

I followed the official manual found here: .

In general everything went smoothly until reaching step 17. When building INSTALL I can observed that cv2.cp36-win_amd64.pyd is moved to \Anaconda3\Lib\site-packages which is on my path for packages.

However, when I promt imput cv2 I am awarded with ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.. In keeping with this, pip list I also does not encloses opencv-python.

Could someone help me making my python aware of the opencv package. Thank you!

Additional Information

Earlier, I used binaries which where installed as wheels with pip install. I found the wheels on the unofficial page Doing so, additionally adds the file plus pip list shows the entry opencv-python.
