hey there guys im here trying to follow any YT Video trying to find a setup with full details for my setup, usually ppl leave small details behind and this being the main reason why im yet to run visual studio express 2013 with opencv on win 8.1 and i think mostly because the variables not being fully supply for all aspect of installation, maybe someone can help me pick up where i left off or help me get started from the beginning ?

OPENCV3 SETUP: as in now i have install C:\OpenCV 3 i when on to setup system variables by adding new for the opencv_dir (in all CAPS) with the c:\opencv\build\x86\vc12 under it and OK that box, then i when to add to the path by adding to the end of the list ;%OPENCV_DIR%\bin OK that box as well and i guess this was all i was supposed to do/follow to get OpenCV3 on my PC

VISUAL STUDIO EXPRESS 2013 SETUP: Open up VS2013 open new project and go on to win32 console i name it test and OK it, then i when on to add more.

  • open files properties make sure we are on RELEASE and ACTIVE(WIN32)
  • under c/c++ add $(OPENCV_DIR)....\include
  • under linker general add $(OPENCV_DIR)\lib
  • the in the INPUT part of the LINKER DROPDOWN add more dependencies- opencv_tx300.lib opencv_world300.lib DONE with RELEASE

  • now go back to the top of properties and switch from RELEASE to DEBUG and repeat process again!!! (ughhh **** me) the after all is done again, go ahead closed the property window and right click on SOURCE and add new, i pasted this-

    #include <cstdio>
    #include <opencv2/opencv.hpp>
    void main()
      std::cout << "OpenCV Version: " << CV_VERSION << std::endl;

and as you guessed it, NOTHING!!!! "**** me again 2x's"

what when wrong?
