Wow I didn't realize IPP wasn't free. Do you have any idea what kind of performance gain you could get with IPP? And thanks

2012-09-17 10:17:02 -0500 asked a question How do I install OpenCV with IPP and TBB?

Well I've been reading through the documentation but it seems pretty poor for OpenCV, IPP, AND TBB. Nowehere does it concisely explain how to install any of these. I've downloaded Cmake and tried Cmaking OpenCV and I 've also downloadedd TBB and IPP but have had no luck getting them integrated. MingW cannot compile TBB through src and the binary TBB doesn't work properly either because of errors in TBB. And the IPP download only seems to be 1 cpp file which doesn't make much sense to me. It really bothers me when people make documentation and assume users know certain things and skip steps and don't properly explain how to do something. Somebody please help

To give you a summary, here is what I've done so far:

-Downloaded MinGW, IPP, OpenCV, TBB, Cmake (as it says on the OpenCV installation guide)

-Tried using TBB binary but it doesn't work because of errors in Cmake (I also can't tell if it's properly installed because it's just a zip and I've added the TBB_ROOT variable to my environment variables which helped a little but there are still errors)

-Tried compiling TBB with MinGW and msys but there are many, many lines of errors and commands not found and I also cannot tell if MinGW is properly installed

-Downloaded IPP and tried changing the IPP_H path variable inside Cmake
