What is the right way to move the OpenCV binaries in Windows+VS?

I am a novice with VS2012 (and any development on Windows) but I have followed: http://docs.opencv.org/doc/tutorials/introduction/windows_install/windows_install.html#windows-installation

The documentation is great, but at the "Set the OpenCV enviroment variable and add it to the systems path" step it seems to be missing something. In the previous section it leaves your files in /Build/bin and in this next section it wants them in /build/{platform_type}/{compiler}.

How is this done correctly? By manually moving the files from various directories after the build+install? Or is there a way to configure the build+install to put the files in the /build/{platform_type}/{compiler} directory when "build install" is run?

just to shade some light on the 2 different paths there:

the precompiled binaries are in /build/{platform_type}/{compiler} , if you build yourself, it's /build/bin

Okay. Excellent. I won't worry about moving the binaries I have built, then. I will just use the /build/bin path.
