OpenCV 2.4.2 installation for Microsoft Windows®

Installation instructions for OpenCV 2.X software for Microsoft Windows® by Bernát Gábor on the OpenCV website are very good. Just click on the "OpenCV for Windows" link at the OpenCV downloads page If you decide to compile the source code yourself, theOpenCV2.4.2 you should use the VC++ 2010 compiler under Windows. If you are using the Visual Studio 2012 IDE do not select the option to convert the project solution to the newer version. The VC++ 2011 compiler will generate lots of errors if you do.
