Do the precompiled downloads include CUDA?

Title says it all.

I downloaded the precompiled OpenCV 2.4.5 for Windows and I am using VS2010 C++ with an NVIDIA GeForce 610M. My project compiles fine and CUDA 5.0 appears in the Project Configurations.

All the non-CUDA aspects of OpenCV appear to be working fine. However, getCudaEnabledDeviceCount always returns zero and if I actually try and load a GpuMat with a Mat, I crash.

I see several discussions about settings to compile OpenCV with CUDA. Before I go down that route, I wonder if anyone knows if CUDA support is already compiled in the downloads or if there is something else I am supposed to be setting?

Thanks for any help.

No. Precompiled OpenCV 2.4.5 bineries were built without CUDA support. If you want to use CUDA features you have to build OpenCV from sources.

Thanks. That adds another step to getting something working so I suggest that the dev team consider adding an option to download precompiled binaries with CUDA support. It might speed up adoption. Thanks again.

Let me edit my earlier response, I re-built the downloads with CMake and WITH_CUDA=ON (which took more than 7 hours on my Windows 7, i3 machine). Now, getCudaEnabledDeviceCount is returning a -1. Any ideas? Thanks

This indicates that the installed NVIDIA CUDA driver is older than the CUDA runtime library. Try to install latest driver.
