try checking if lib paths are correct. im talking about correct compiler and debuger setup (i had this problem too, btw i didin't managed to set up OpenCV with Win7 x64 and Visual Studio 2012 and 2010)

I think if path was incorrect then application doesn't compile and release apk file. I am using Qt Creator and that code does works for windows. It does't work only on Android!
