I would like to program with OpenCV 3.2 with both C++ and Python 3.5, under Windows 10. Can I do it just installing OpenCV 3.2 from the pre-built binaries? Or must I build OpenCV from source?

afaik, the cv2.pyd that comes prebuilt there is for python2.7 only. the c++ libs are for vs2015 64bit exclusively. so, yea, if you need py3.5 support, or a different c++ compiler, -- there will be no way avoiding to build from src.

I believe berak is correct. I ended up building from source with Python 3.5 (Anaconda) and Visual Studio 2017, and so far it is working fine.
