Hello! Is it possible to run an OpenCV program on a computer where OpenCV isn't installed? If yes, how? (It gives an error- opencv_core243.dll missing) Thank you!

there's 2 ways:

  1. copy all opencv_* dlls to the other machine,
    • either to the same dir as the app is in,
    • or to a separate folder & setup the PATH var to point to it
  2. rebuild the opencv libs as static libs using cmake (untick the SHARED_LIBS box), then link your program against those. this will lead to a (huge) binary without dependancies to the opencv-dlls. (e.g. this is what the python-wrapper does)
