OpenCV3 alpha - using precompiled binaries on windows

Hi there,

I have used the search function but did not find a suitable answer so far. My question: is it possible to use openCV 3 alpha on a windows machine without building the library? For the versions 2.4.X I can download the self-extrating zip and there are always precompiled binaries which I can use from sratch. In the openCV 3 package I also found a "bin" folder with binaries, but there are only a few dll and lib files located (ffmpeg.dll, world300.dll)- most files are not here.

So, what can I do in this case? Can I use the missing files from the 2.4.9 release or do I have to build the library by myself via CMake?

Thanks for the help! Johannes

Combining 3.0 and 2.4.9 won't work. Building is the only option now. It is an alpha release, drop it and use the master download from github. That one had literally 100 fixes since the alpha release and is much more stable, even if it is a development branch.
