i have tried a lot of tutorials regarding configuring opencv 2.2 or 2.3 with MVS 2010 express c++, i tried also uninstall and reinstall my MVS 2010 to sure that it is working, and i also configured it with opencv, like creating property sheets(DEBUG & RELEASE) and then set the Additional dependencies,lbraries,includes and so on and so forth, and when trying to run a simple program (Like displayin a video), i ALWAYS got this error:

1>------ Build started: Project: wew, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------
1>TRACKER : error TRK0005: Failed to locate: "CL.exe". The system cannot find the file     specified.
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

This has nothing to do with openCV but with your Visual Studio installation. It means that it doesn't succeed in finding the correct C and C++ compiler which is the CL.exe application.

Check this link on how to solve this problem.
