I'm using Windows xp 32bit, and I have installed python 3.4 on it.. But I'm getting problem to install OpenCV - python on my system. I have tried to copy .pyd file in site libraries too but still it's says couldn't find open cv.. So how to install it on Windows xp for python? And which version should I install? Please help me!!!!! T.T

if you're mainly interested in running python code, try a straight

pip install opencv-python

else (c++, java) you have to build the opencv libs from src using cmake (there are no more prebuilt x86 libs available)

When I try to directly install it via pip, it says couldn't find a version that satisfies the requirement opencv, No matching distribution found for opencv.

What do you mean? Is there any file which you sent for opencv3.2?

I won't send anything, sorry.

it'll just be hard to find something current for your outdated box. (there was no py3.4 at xp times, so you probably won't find opencv python bindings for that version)

good luck, anyway.

So will it work if I upgrade to Windows 7?
