I have setup Opencv as described here (which needs to be updated by the way):

However, when I've tried to run the test code written at that page, I received a bunch of errors, like error code LNK2038, LNK2005, LNK2001, LNK2019 etc. What Microsoft says about this issue is: "This error can occur when an object file in your project is out-of-date".

So, are the library files compatible with Visual Studio 2015?

if you build opencv from source it is compatible.

It seems you are mixing statically linked libraries with dynamic build settings. This is not related to OpenCV but to your MVS configuration...

Yes. It is. Prebuild libs are only for VS11 VS12.. Visual studio 2012 and 13.. Just build your own libs. It took abour 40 minutes. This tutorial show you How to use CMAKE and by SLN project build and release own libs for VS 2015. And it workes. :) I am using 64 bit version under visual studio 2015.
