I need to try out the newly added KAZE features so I'm trying to switch from opencv 2 to opencv 3, but I can't find the dll and lib files in the x64 directory as I did with opencv2.

x64/vc12/bin now only contains opencvworld and ffmpeg dlls. All other dlls and libs like features2d, flann and missing. Where can I find these dlls? I need to include these in a visual studio 2013 c++ project.

Have you build OpenCV 3, or installed it? The includes should change, but you have some problems on linking... Usually I build it from git. Anyway, it should also include the contrib repository... Have you followed these steps?

I have tried to follow those steps, but I'm stuck at this point : I can't find these .lib file inside the build folder. These files are included in opencv2 build., but in opencv3 they are unavailable!

Strange... You have build it with CMake and you still do not have the libs and dlls?

I have not built it with cmake. I'm trying to build the pre-built libs which come with opencv package.

opencv_world.lib should contain all other modules, so just link against that.

(you only need opencv_ts, if you are writing a unit test)

Have you cloned checkouted and build the tag 3.0.0 or 2.4?
