Hello, I have been very interested in studying Facial Recognition and a good friend of mine had me look into openCV. I can get most of the tutorials to work while learning to use openCV but when I need to use

#include <opencv2/core/utility.hpp>

I receive an error saying it cannot be found, I looked into the folder and its not there? and this is coming from a fresh copy of openCV off of github. Where or how can I fix not having the utility.hpp?

a lot of utility functions like format() have been moved from opencv2/core/core.hpp to opencv2/core/utility.hpp in master.

if you can't find that header with your install, my guess is, that you're on 2.4.5, but trying the sample from master.

please try the 2.4 facerec sample instead, and report.

actually I had built from the 2.4.9. I also noticed that when I installed opencv on a different computer, it behaved differently and actually added the utility.hpp to to opencv2/core/utility.hpp.

however instead of it doing /build/x86/vc10/ it doesn't add that at all?

sorry, did not understand your last question

on the demo, I need to create a CSV, the data in that file, would it be the paths to the image? or?

nvm I found my answer on the CSV.

when I tried to build OpenCV on the 2.4.9 it behaved differently on my laptop then it did on my computer. Instead of having opencv/build/x86/vc10/lib, it doesn't give me that directory at all. I tried to rebuild it with cmake and vs c++ but the outcome keeps staying the same.

however the 2.4 facerec sample that you had linked to me works great-ish on 2.4.5. I built my CSV and plugged it into the command line

Facerec_demo.exe at.txt

and it stats working, loads a screen that's blue and white and gray on the rest of the screen, and just sits there forever not doing anything.

I have the same problem. The only utility.hpp is in /opencv2/gpu/device. I'm trying to run the example code for camera calibration, which uses it ( Using a compiled from source 2.4.8.

Guys, this file exists only in master (OpenCV 3.0), so, please use it.

You do realize that sometimes an upgrade of the system is not desired, right? :)

You do realize that sometimes an upgrade is not possible/desirable, right?

@rbaleksandar , for 2.4, just use the appropriate sample code
