Hello,

I tried to download the opencv package (self extracting 7z archive) from sourceforg (2.4.3). Trying to follow the tutorials. I could find out the library directory etc..

However I am stuck now with the include files: the /include/opencv2 folder is empty (apart from 1 file). Where are the included files & what is the directory I need to add to visual studio?

Use build/include folder for includes and build/ or build/lib for libraries.

THIS simple line should be somewhere prominent. (BTW there is no build/lib - as there are library folders for each architecture.

In windows you can see include directory at

 ..\OpenCv_Extracted_Directory\build\include\

And the libraries are at the location for x86 architecture

 ..\OpenCv_Extracted_Directory\build\x86\mingw\lib

And for x_64 architecture

   ..\OpenCv_Extracted_Directory\build\x64\mingw\lib

what if your build folder is completely missing? I downloaded a version of openCV 2.4.1 and 3.1.0 and no build folder existed in either!
