VS2012

1) Insert the include folder into the additional library configuration



2) Add the addtional linker libraries to the linker. 

Note: Check if your project is x86 or x64, do not add the wrong opencv directory. Will cause numerous linker error to surface.


3) Add the below core libraries files so that the linkers can find it
