Hi, I have downloaded the "OpenCV-2.4.3.exe" as written in Tutorials: "1.Launch a web browser of choice and go to our page on Sourceforge." After I run this file it extracted the files but didn't start installation wizard!

Please help.

Hi! You've done all right. For the next step, check tutorial "How to building applications with OpenCV inside the Microsoft Visual Studio": (P.S. Now OpenCV has no installation wizard, this doc will be fixed with next release).

if you're trying to use the prebuilt libraries, - there is no further install step.

you have to add the path to your binaries(the dlls) to your global PATH environment variable, so your program can find them at runtime. on my machine, that's : E:\code\opencv242\build\x86\vc9\bin , choose your combination of os(64/32 bit) and compiler(vc9/vc10/mingw) here.

start a new project, point the include dirs at: opencv\build\include, and the linker dirs at: opencv\build\x86\vc9\lib (same os/compiler thing as above). most projects should at least need opencv_core243.lib and opencv_highgui243.lib ( add a 'd' after 243 for debug builds )

that's it!
