OpenCv 4.1.1 Visual studio 2019 Windows 10

I downloaded and compiled successfuly opencv 4.1.1 by cmake. when I try to compile a sample I get an error from base.hpp - can't find opencv_modules.hpp. I search the directory of the downloaded source package and the directory of the build and can't find it. I am using opencv for about 14 years upgrading versions many times. This is my first try with opencv 4 Thanks. C:\fakepath\cmake411.jpg It is txt with extention .jpg

assuming you did build the INSTALL project, it should be generated in opencv/build/install/include

unlike using the prebuild libs, when using locally built opencv you have to rewire your include / linker path to the install folder

Thanks for answering. I compiled opencv 3.x.x many times and used them succesfuly for years. I downloaded I unzipped it. I opened CMake. I set Where is the source files I set where to output the build. I ran configure and I ran generate. I than Opened the solution and compiled by vs2019.

I dont understand what I did wrong. Thanks

Do you use opencv_contrib?

To berak : I edited and attached the file as .jpg although it is txt. To LBerger : Do I have to do something to use opencv_contrib? If yes than I did nothing for it. I used the default configuration with 2 changes: without IPP and with Inference engine.

see l 138:

Install to: D:/Opencv411/install

so that's where your headers/libs should be.

@Shay Weissman you don't use opencv_contrib

d:/Opencv411/install was not created. 3rdparty,apps,bin, ... all where created install did not.
