Well,I used opencv 2.3 when I had visual studio-2008 and it worked fine,I guess you should upgrade visual studio to 2010 so that you can use atleast 2.4.6 version. :)

Actually the latest version is correct for your system. Just know that you should use the vc9 visual compiler lib and dll folders. vc10 and vc11 won't work on visual studio 2008.

btw, 3.0 will require you to get stdint.h from somewhere and drop it into the include folder of your compiler

VS 2008 is buggy on Windows 7, so you might want to upgrade that, if possible.

I had a similar question and I ended up downloading 2.4.8, 2.4.7 and 2.4.6. Only 2.4.6 had the vc9 build. I assume you could use the newer versions but would need to build them yourself from the provided source.
