I just forked on github and cloned with VS2017 enterprise. It seems many solutions contain files that throw version incompatibility errors, or throw version incompatibility errors themselves. Is VS development at all supported? If so, how are these errors generally resolved?

EDIT: The default VS update procedure does not seem to be often successful, but I've only looked at a couple of files.

i don't understand something: there are no VS solutions or projects here at all (you would have to generate those via cmake). so where exactly do you run into an "update" problem ?

Visual Studio 2018? What's that? Visual Studio 2019 it's here

ah ok. the winrt samples. noone else uses those.

from the readme.txt:

Please follow the instructions in "platforms/winrt/readme.txt" to generate and build OpenCV for WinRT.

see here

(and to my knowledge, you need a special microsoft fork of opencv to run them)

if you want my 2 ct: ignore the winrt / wp8 samples.

berak: ok, I missed the part where those were winrt. To rephrase (and I'll post a new question of you want) is there an "official" way to build on Win10 using VS?
