The ones on the web are out of date and does not work. I am trying to include OpenCV with my project and it has to be via CMake.

The automatically generated build/OpenCVConfig.cmake does not work. Amogst other things, this .cmake file is looking for variable "MSVC_VERSION" which does not exist in my environment (even after running vcvarsall.bat)

HELP please!

So it turns out it works fine if i build opencv myself. The out of the box version has issues.

In my experience, the FindOpenCV.cmake files floating around are incompatible with OpenCV 2.4+. If that's the version of OpenCV you're working with, then try this one:

I've had some success with it when building on Linux with gcc. The project is licensed under GPLv3.

I know it is almost a year from your answer, but the link you provided is no longer working. Could you please post another link to the aforementioned FindOpenCV.cmake? Thank you.
