I've built opencv-master-4.0.1 on windows/mingw and want to use tesseract. I found some hints how to build leptonica and tesseract ( leptonica works fine, however tesseract cmake(mingw compiler) this fails with

Checking for module 'lept>=1.74' No package 'lept' found

the environment variable leptonica_dir=F:\leptonica-1.74.4 is set.

How can I make tesseract ocr working with c++ opencv and windows?

Thanks for hints, Wolf

Have you try ? change variable CMAKE_CONFIG_GENERATOR="Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64"

Thanks; however the installation using git-bash produces endless errors on my wind10 system; Like:

sh.exe was found in your PATH, here  D:/Programme/Git/usr/bin/sh.exe

No such a path neither in windows, nor with git-bash. I renamed 'sh.exe' in the above path. Next are the following errors:

Scanning dependencies of target png-fix-itxt
[  2%] Building C object CMakeFiles/png-fix-itxt.dir/contrib/tools/png-fix-itxt.c.obj
mingw32-make.exe[2]: *** No rule to make target 'D:/lib/install/zlib/lib/zlibstatic.lib', needed by 'png-fix-itxt.exe'.  Stop.

mingw32-make.exe[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/png-fix-itxt.dir/all] Error 2

I stopped the task.

Yes, I've installed git-bash before.

@sturkmen thanks for your offer to help :-) I'm using windows 10 (if that matters) cmake and code::blocks. Still running into problems as described in original post. How was your appreoach?

@sturkmen Would you write steps and prerequisites to build openCV + Tesseract I has cloned OpenCV 4.1.2 , Tesseract5.0 and leptonica1.79 i succeed to build opencv using Cmake gui without tesseract , but i can not configure cmake to build with leptionic and tesseract
