I am trying to install opencv3 with cmake using the tutorials using python but I can't get it working. The error I constantly receive when I import cv using python

importerror no module named cv2

I am using the following tools :-

  1. Installed python 2.7.9 (32 bit)
  2. Installed numpy 1.11 from here
  3. Installed latest cmake version
  4. Using VS2012 for build and compiling (32 bit)
  5. Downloaded opencv3 from github.

I am utterly confused. Is there something that I am misssing something or any dependencies ?

Without error message It's difficult to understand your problem...

I have edited the question. Check once again.

  • after building opencv libs in VS2012, you have to build the INSTALL project. thiswill copy the cv2.pyd to your python install
  • even if it's long, - please show us the cmake output (add to your question)
