Lib folder is (almost) empty?

Hello guys, I am completely new to OpenCV and I was trying to set it up for the first time. I am on Windows 7 64bit and using Visual Studio 2013. I first tried with Open CV 301 by usign this tutorial The problem is that my system canno find opencv_calib3d301.lib, and of course it cant'! The folder C:\opencv\build\x64\vc12\lib is almost completely empty! Does not contain all the required library, but only some opencv_ts301.lib files.

Then I tried to download the 3.0.0 as it is the one the tutorial is referring to. Well, the same! Lib folder does not contain the required files: image description

However, in build\x64\vc12 there was another folder apart from bin and lib, which was staticlib, which contains ALL THE LIBRARIES that I needed. End of story? Not really, even after selecting this folder for all the dependencies, I still get some problem.

I think that the main mistery, here, is why I don't get all those files in the lib folder. I went to several online tutorial and no one mentioned this problem, which is really weird. Am I missing something?

Thank you for your help
