I'm trying to build opencv to use with qt5. using CMake I configured and generated opencv with qt options. now when I try to run mingw32-make -j 8 as mentioned in the follow-through, I get the error:

gcc: error: long: No such file or directory
C:\Strawberry\c\bin\windres.exe: preprocessing failed.
mingw32-make[2]: * [modules\core\CMakeFiles\opencv_core.dir\build.make:1341: modules/core/CMakeFiles/opencv_core.dir/vs_version.rc.obj] Error 1

the windres.exe that comes with mingw cannot escape / handle "long long" in the vs_version.rc

(it stops at the blank and sees the 2nd "long" as a file argument)


either switch off the allocator stats:


or change the type:


then, clean your build folder and re-run cmake
