  1. when you download open cv and unzip it/.exe, do you need to do further compilation or are the binaries pre-built, ready to go?

I was involved in a cv projects years ago, but am rusty on setting up the environment again.

as of now, yes, if you're using visual studio.

for anything else (mingw, linux, bloody apple) you will have to compile the opencv libs from src, using cmake

but, again, - those prebuild libs are plain vanilla - if you need cuda/ocl/tbb/qt support, - you need to install the respective sdk, and re-compile from src.

If you are using Java, you can directly use. Just extract the zip file to c drive and add the jar file to Eclipse build path, that is OK.
