problem building OpenCV with TBB on Windows MSVC 2005

Hi

I have successfully built OpenCV using the CMake generated makefiles for MinGW tools (GCC 4.4) using Intel's TBB (Thread Building Blocks), which was also successfully built under those conditions.

But now, trying to build OpenCV using the CMake generated solution and project files for MS Visual Studio 2005, it fails with this error messages:

c:\\tbb30_018oss\\include\\tbb\\
critical_section.h(109) : error C3861: 'TryEnterCriticalSection': identifier not found
c:\\tbb30_018oss\\include\\tbb\\mutex.h(185) : error C3861: 'TryEnterCriticalSection': identifier not found
c:\\tbb30_018oss\\include\\tbb\\recursive_mutex.h(192) : error C3861: 'TryEnterCriticalSection': identifier not found

TBB was successfully built using VS 2005. I guess that I am missing something, but could not find the point.

Thanks
Francisco

might it be that you redefine _WIN32_WINNT macro?

That happened to me in Release mode. What you must do is to define this _WIN32_WINNT=0x0400.

You can do in two different ways.

In code, at the very beguining you can put this:

#ifndef _WIN32_WINNT
#define _WIN32_WINNT=0x0400
#endif

But in fact, you only need this in release mode, so what I do is to put that simbol in the project properties.

For Release do:
Project Property -> C/C++ -> Preprocesor -> Preprocesor definitions
There.. you need to add _WIN32_WINNT=0x0400
