I am a high school programmer little to no experience programming outside of Python IDLE. I have been following a video made in 2013 to test a program that can track colors in real time, but I cannot find a debug file the creator uses. Is there a general debug file for all of opencv, or was this a specific case and does the file not exist anymore? Currently using Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and OpenCV version 4.0.0 Please advise, B

if you are using the prebuilt opencv libs, you'd link to opencv_world400d.lib. there are no PDB files supplied for this, meaning, you get a couple of warnings about that, but you are able to debug your own code, just not the opencv library functions.

if you want to dive into the opencv code while debugging, you have to build the libs from src, this will also generate the missing pdb files.
