I downloaded OpenCV 3.0.0 and VS Express 2015. Followed all the steps as given in the video. But, after building solution error came as "expected a file name" in the first code statement also,
Severity Code Description
Error C1083 Cannot open include file: '': No such file or directory

I'm new to OpenCV.

Thanks for the video, it was easy to understand.
Everything looks to work fine and it is building the programm successfully. But if I click the debugger a system error plops open and is telling me opencv_world300d.dll is missing on my computer. Can someone please help me?

Hello, I followed all the steps in the tutorial. I am also using opencv 3.0.0. I get an error when I run in debug mode saying - cannot open file opencv_ts300d.lib.
What might be the problem

I am using Microsoft visual studio 2010 express and wish to configure open cv 3.0.0 with it . could you guide me for the same.



Why are you using the same additional dependencies for release? You should use the two without the "d" like opencv_world300.lib.
Thanks for the video.
