Of course it gives a PDB file missing error, because they aren't provided with the pre-compiled binaries. But that's not an error, only a warning. You simply don't have debug information for those dlls. So don't worry. You can copy those specific dlls to the project folder.

I also had similar problem, i searched it a lot, and tried updating lot of things, but nothing helped, finally I was able to resolve the problem, by using OpenCv-2.4.4 build. I tried to build the OpenCv 2.4.6 libraries, but CMake gave me some errors. And the prebuilt libraries didn't work. If you are able to successfully build OpenCv-2.4.5 library using CMake, then i guess such problem must not come.

in your project go to properties->linker->additional dependencies and add the corresponding library name. for example for opencv_core245d.dll you need to add opencv_core245d in the additional dependency

This is actually the reason why you are not succeeding in finding the dll's. Also be sure to add the correct bin directory to your system path variable!

you need to add opencv_core245d.lib, with the extension. Could this be the problem?
