The first answer clearly states you did something wrong with your windows installation. Please try to fix this first by following the installation mentioned.

I am now moving to windows 7 with VS 2010. I know that Windows 8 is not supporting cmake. So no way we can install OpenCV in windows 8.

Yes you can install OpenCV in windows 8. However the system is not ideally to program into (one of the main problems in windows 8 I guess). There is always the possibility to use prebuilt binaries, which do not need any cmake at all, only the correct 32 or 64 bit dlls.
