How to install OpenCV 32bit on Win64 machine

asked 2019-12-13 04:28:48 -0500

I got a pan-tilt-unit from flir with the Software Development Kit written in 32bit (back in 2009).

I use OpenCV for feature detection but my already written Programm in Visual Studio19 is x64 using OpenCV 4.1.1 and a Camera SDK with 32 and 64bit .dll available.

Leaving me two choices. 1. Convert the 32bit sdk's .dll files (i dont know a thing about these) 2. Change my feature Detection tool to 32bit. 2.1. If i cant use OpenCV i might have to use something else for feature Detection

you can use IPC to communicate between 32 and 64 bits application

opencv does no more supply 32bit prebuilt binaries.

consider building those locally from src, using cmake

Is there any documentation I can reference on how to do this? I have a 32-bit application I want to integrate opencv functionality with.
