that's because you have the visual studio 2010 version that doesn't include the linker error bug

no, i have every ilbrary added, i have already built a single opencv project- my own program. the problem with the haartraining cpp files is that there are multiple files at once. if i add them into a single project file- they have multiple main() functions- which of course results in conflict. if i add a single .cpp file into each separate project file- i get a linker error: 1>LINK : fatal error LNK1123: failure during conversion to COFF: file invalid or corrupt . google says that this is a microsoft visual studio 2010 bug and i should either disable incremental linking or install VS service pack. now, if i disable incremental linking the .cpp file won't compile, as it needs to link other files from other files. and installing a whole servicepack just for this project is an overkill.

i have decided to try and train my own haar database of some object and in my old opencv (changelog says OpenCV 1.0, October 18, 2006) i had a file called bin/createsamples.exe.

also, everyone online is referencing to file bin/opencv_createsamples.exe.

however, in the latest build that i've downloaded i can find no such thing. i can only find uncompiled .h and .cpp files under the apps directory.

have the pre-built excutables been removed from the latest opencv builds or did i download something wrong?

please excuse this nooby question

edit: this is terrible. with the hassle, i've been trying to compile the haar training files for an hour an half now. the includes are even wrong: the new version of opencv has no "highgui.h", or "cxcore.h" in main directory. they are now located in "opencv/highgui.h", etc. which is funny, because the same files including stuff just like "highgui.h" are also including "opencv2/core/core.hpp". meaning that they should be including "opencv/cxcore.h" instead of just "cxcore.h".

those files need cleaning

edit2: oh god, i am giving up. now there is another barrier- microsoft visual studio has a bug that makes incremental linking unfunctional. however, i can't compile the haar training cpp files without incremental linking. i am going to use the old exe from the old opencv from 2006

have there been any changes to the haar training files?
