I opened cmd and typed the following:

setx -m OPENCV_DIR D:\OpenCV\Build\x64\vc15

Got the following error message:

Access to registry path is denied.

Then I changed the original command to read:

setx OPENCV_DIR D:\OpenCV\Build\x64\vc11

I got: SUCCESS: Specified value was saved

Just wondering is this ok since I am using Visual Studio 2015 not 2012 which it appears the installation tutorial was created for. Also what is the relevance of dropping the '-m'?

I have downloaded Open CV version 3.0 RC1 and Visual Studio 2015 RC and I want to start doing some basic projects in c/c++. My operating system is Windows 7.

I have read something about setting up and OpenCV enviroment variable and adding it to the systems path ( but this relates to an older version.

I am a bit lost at the moment and I was just wondering if any of you more experienced users could tell me the steps needed to get this up and running so I can start doing some projects. (If you are stuck for time, just the next step will do)

Thanks in advance
