Hello, i'm very newbie in OpenCV and Visual Studio I am working with windows 7, 64-bit, and I used VS2012 How to configure it? I've been using the tutorial from link text but it still doesn't work.

I have written the example code, and set additional libraries but I am getting the mentioned error message: fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'opencv_core242.lib'

Hopefully anybody help me to solve it.

Thanks In Advance!!

Regards, Ade Nurusani

I've written a blog post which might help you to use OpenCV with Visual Studio 2012: Using OpenCV 2.4.2 with Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 7 (64-bit) See if it works for you!

Hi! If you install OpenCV from pre-built libs, than current version has no pre-built libs especially for Visual Studio 2012, so that can be problem (you can try, but there is no guarantee). You can use the other version of Visual Studio or build OpenCV from sources.

Furthermore, we have tutorial How to build applications with OpenCV inside the Microsoft Visual Studio. It explains, how to use OpenCV with Visual Studio, including linking step.
Also, you can check this answer.

I propose that we should create an FAQ and display its link prominently.

Ade: Please look at the settings of Visual Studio and add the location of OpenCV library files in there. I am on VS 2008, and the place where I added this is: Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->VC++ Directories->Library Files. If OpenCV is installed in c:/opencv, you will add two lines in there as: c:\opencv\lib\Debug c:\opencv\lib\Release

Hmmm that's not work because in VS 2012, VC++ Directories editing in Tools> Options has been deprecated. I don't know in VS 2008, maybe i will try it
