building opencv3 for python in windows,


I'm trying to build opencv3 on my windows 7 system using Visual Studio 2012 using this reference:

I'm using Anaconda Python 2.7 and do not have any other version of Python installed. When I ran CMake on windows, I couldn't find everything related to Python as was described in the reference, so I manually created the ones I could't find with appropriate names and values. These were in the C:/Anaconda folder for me instead of the usual C:/Python27 folder. Of the ones I manually entered, the following were not generated by CMake. This is the error I get:

Configuring done
Generating done
CMake Warning:
Manually-specified variables were not used by the project:

I have no prior experience with building packages but desperately need openCV3 for my project. I'd be thankful if someone could point me in the right direction and tell me what I need to do next to fix this.
