Hello, I am very new to OpenCV-Android. I have problems installing OpenCV4Android-SDK. The instruction on says "Install the Manager.apk and the corresponding binary_pack.apk depending on the device CPU..." I don't know the kind of APK to install. I also don't know what does ArmV7A, X86, Armeabi-Armv7A, MIPS mean. Can you help me install the right apk? Here is the screenshot to my available APK located in C:\Work\OpenCV4Android\OpenCV-2.4.3-android-sdk\apk image description

from the windows shell or a linux terminal you can run this command with your device attached to your PC

adb shell getprop ro.product.cpu.abi

this will return the type of cpu your device has, and then you can load the correct version of the manager and of the library

Hello @Simone! I'm using an android emulator on Windows. Specifically, what will be the path to execute those commands?

If you are using eclipse then you can go to Window > AVD Manager and then you see the list of emulators you have created. Select the one you want to use and click Edit. On the third box of the windows that pops up you can see the CPU of the Emulator. check this

Otherwise you have for sure installed the Android SDK (, go to that directory from the windows prompt, go to tools directory and run the above command
