I am trying to install OpenCV in windows by using the pre-built libraries.

I want to set the OpenCV enviroment variable and add it to the systems path but when I write:

setx -m OPENCV_DIR D:\OpenCV\Build\x86\vc10

It tells me

'setx-m' n'est pas reconnu en tant que commande interne ou externe, un programme exécutable ou un fichier de commandes

Can you help me please?

Translated the topic to English, since this is the main language of the forum

Please follow the next steps:

  • Right click on 'Computer'
  • Properties
  • Advanced system properties
  • Environment variables
  • Look for PATH variable under system variables --> double click
  • Add the text at the back = D:\OpenCV\Build\x86\vc10;

No problem, I didn't make a problem of translating. However, if someone has same problem now, they will always understand the answer.

Oh you have 2 choices : -You create a new variable named OPENCV_DIR with value D:\OpenCV\Build\x86\vc10; and add %OPENCV_DIR%\bin to the PATH. -You add ;D:\OpenCV\Build\x86\vc10\bin to the PATH.

Maybe the first is more correct, I made a mistake sorry.
