Problem configuring and installing openvcv

asked 2015-06-23 07:11:52 -0500


Builds/Official/OpenCV/ Builds folder itself does not exist and hence no folder inside the Builds when I tried to install opencv as suggested :

I am trying to configure devcpp with opencv, but the below folders do not exist : C:\OpenCV2.0\lib C:\OpenCV2.0\bin C:\OpenCV2.0\include\opencv

Also, I did not find these libs anywhere on my windows 7 machine : -lcxcore200 -lcv200 -lhighgui200 -lml200 -lcvaux200 -lcxts200 Please help Regards Abhishek

the page in your link does not mention opencv2.0 at all ?

(also you should not even trywith such an outdated version. either get 2.4.11, or 3.0 from

if you're trying to use devcpp/mingw, unfortunately, your 1st step will be to build the opencv libs for mingw using cmake, pretty similar to here.

Hi I have installed a few versions of OpenCV 2.x and OpenCV 3.0 as well, none of them have bin or lib folders. Also, which version of devcpp, do you recommend? devcpp/mingw - this is one of the compilers which comes with devcpp, is it must to you this? if yes, I have no hesitation in using it.If not, please which compiler installed with devcpp, i should use. Also, from your comment it appears, with devcpp/mingw, I must first do the build creation. Do, I need build the libs with the other compilers(which gets installed with devcpp)? A details answer will be really appreciated.. Regards Abhishek

oh, wait, if you can use cl.exe for compiler, you can use the prebuild libs. if you opt for mingw, you have to build from src.

(and no idea, about devcpp versions, haven't used that in a decade)

((why not get vs express ? it's free, and will save you a lot of trouble))

Hi, Express 2013 for Windows or Express 2013 for Windows Desktop at the below page :

Also, In the link above you have suggested switch to ubuntu. I am C++ programmer on Linux(rather than windows) fundamentally. Right now, I do not have access to any Linux machine Is there any Ubuntu VM available which I can simply download and start using. Thanks in Advance!!
