Windows

Nuget

Using nuget package manager is probably the easiest way to include Emgu CV library in your project.

Open Source Release

  • From your project, right click on "References" and select "Manager Nuget Packages..." option. It will open up nuget package manager. In package source, make sure that "nuget.org" is selected. (If you are using the commercial release, please check the instruction in the commercial download area for instructions to setup the commercial release nuget repository.)
  • Under "Browse", enter the search text "emgu.cv.runtime" and you should be able to find the Emgu.CV.runtime.windows nuget package.

Install EmguCV Nuget.png

Please make sure the package is created by "Emgu Corporation" for the official release.

  • Click the "Install" button. Nuget will download Emgu.CV.runtime.windows and configure the project for you.

Commercial Release

  • If you are using the commercial release, please check the instruction in the commercial download area for instructions to setup the commercial release nuget repository.
  • Commercial release download link can be found in the "Download Instructions" at the bottom of your purchase complete page. It is also available on the product delivery email, under the "CUSTOMER SERVICE" session, it appears as a link under "Your Order Data". Please click on the link to access the Commercial release download session.
  • If you have the Professional / Ultimate license. The instruction can be found in "windows/nuget.txt" file.
  • If you have the Windows only license. The instructions can be found in "nuget.txt" file
  • Once the commercial nuget repository is set up, you can browse it, there should be two packages: Emgu.CV.runtime.windows-CR is the commercial release runtime without CUDA; Emgu.CV.runtime.windows.cuda-CR is the commercial release runtime with CUDA support.
  • Click the "Install" button. Nuget will download Emgu CV commercial release and configure the project for you.

Using the Downloadable packages

If you are using the downloadable packages (.zip or .exe), you can follow the instructions below.

Getting the Dependency

  • For Version 3.0+, the required vcrt dlls are included in the "x86" and "x64" folder. You will be ready as long as you copy all the unmanaged dlls in the "x86" and "x64" folder to the folder of executable.
  • For version 2.4.x the bundled OpenCV binary is build with Visual Studio 2010, you will needs to installed MSVCRT 9.0 SP1 x86 or MSVCRT 9.0 SP1 x64 to resolve the dependency issue.
  • For Version 2.0 - 2.3, the bundled OpenCV binary is build with Visual Studio 2008, you will needs to installed MSVCRT 9.0 SP1 to resolve the dependency issue.
  • For Version 1.5, the bundled OpenCV pre1.1 binary is build with Visual Studio 2005, you will needs to installed MSVCRT 8.0 SP1 to resolve the dependency issue.

Building the Examples

  • Follow this link to the file server on Source Forge.
  • Download and extract the windows installer.
  • Install the software
  • Go to the "Solution\Windows.Desktop" folder.
  • Open Emgu.CV.Example.sln and build the solution. At this point, you should be able to run the example programs.

Creating a New Project in Visual Studio

To use the framework in Visual Studio, you need to

  • Download and extract the binary files package Emgu.CV.Windows.Binary-{version}.zip

For a Full guide to using the dependencies under Visual Studio and C# see the C# Tutorial.

Core Functionality
Managed Code
  • Create a new Visual Studio project or use an existing one
  • Add reference
    • For 4.2 release. Add the Emgu.CV.World.NetStandard.dll to Reference. Add Emgu.CV.Runtime\Windows\Emgu.CV.Runtime.Windows shared project to include the native dlls into your project.
    • For 3.1 release. Add the Emgu.CV.World.dll to Reference of the project.
    • For 3.0 release. Add the two files Emgu.Utils.dll and Emgu.CV.dll to References of the project.
  • Optionally put the following lines in the top of your code to include the Emgu.CV namespace.

using Emgu.CV;

using Emgu.CV.Structure;

Open CV unmanaged dll
  • For Emgu CV 4.2 and above, adding Emgu.CV.Runtime\Windows\Emgu.CV.Runtime.Windows shared project to your project will take care of deploying all the native files.
  • For older releases, copy the "x86" and "x64" folder, along with the DLLs inside those folder to the folder of the executable. Emgu CV is able to load the unmanaged binary from the "x86" folder when running in 32bit mode, and load the unmanaged binary from the "x64" folder when running in 64bit-mode. If you are only targeting the "x64" platform, you only need to copy the "x64" folder.
CUDA (GPU) package
  • For Emgu CV 4.2 and above, adding Emgu.CV.Runtime\Windows\Emgu.CV.Runtime.Windows shared project to your project will take care of deploying all the native files.
  • For Emgu CV 3.x+, only package containing -cuda in its name (e.g. libemgucv-xxx-cuda-xxx ) has CUDA processing enabled.
    • Install the latest cuda graphic card driver from NVIDIA on your development workstation.
    • Adding reference: For 3.1 release. You don't need to add extra references. The Cuda namespace is part of the Emgu.CV.World.dll; For 3.0 release. Add Emgu.CV.Cuda.dll to References
    • Optionally put the following lines in the top of your code to include the Emgu.CV.Cuda namespace. using Emgu.CV.Cuda;
  • For Emgu CV 2.x, CUDA (GPU) for image processing is only available for Emgu CV rev 2.2.1 and later. Only package containing -gpu in its name (e.g. libemgucv-xxx-gpu-xxx) has CUDA (GPU) processing enabled.
    • Install the latest cuda graphic card driver from NVIDIA on your development workstation.
    • Add Emgu.CV.GPU.dll to References
    • Optionally put the following lines in the top of your code to include the Emgu.CV.GPU namespace. using Emgu.CV.GPU;
GUI

To display image using Emgu's ImageBox

  • Add Emgu.CV.UI.dll to References
  • Optionally put the following lines in the top of your code to include the Emgu.CV.UI namespace.

using Emgu.CV.UI;

Machine Learning
  • Adding reference
    • For 3.1 release. You don't need to add extra reference.
    • For release up to and including 3.0 release, add Emgu.CV.ML.dll to References
  • Optionally put the following lines in the top of your code to include the Emgu.CV.ML namespace.

using Emgu.CV.ML;

Start Developing
  • Follow the Tutorial to learn how to use Emgu CV.
  • Hello World (C# or VB .NET) is a good starting point.

The type initializer for 'Emgu.CV.CvInvoke' threw an exception.

If you see this exception, please check the following

Have you installed MSVCRT?
  • For Version 3.0+, the required vcrt dlls are included in the "x86" and "x64" folder. You will be ready as long as you copy all the unmanaged dlls in the "x86" and "x64" folder to the folder of executable.
  • For Version 2.4+, the bundled OpenCV binary is build with Visual Studio 2010, you will needs to installed MSVCRT 10.0 SP1 x86 or MSVCRT 10.0 SP1 x64 to resolve the dependency issue.
  • For Version 2.0+, the bundled OpenCV binary is build with Visual Studio 2008, you will needs to installed MSVCRT 9.0 SP1 to resolve the dependency issue.
  • For Version 1.5, the bundled OpenCV pre1.1 binary is build with Visual Studio 2005, you will needs to installed MSVCRT 8.0 SP1 to resolve the dependency issue.
Have you copied the OpenCV dlls to the execution directory?
  • Make sure the unmanaged DLLs are in the execution directory.
    • For Emgu CV version >=2.4.2, this means the "x86" and "x64" folder and all the dlls within the folders. The folder names and file structures should not be altered when deploying with the application.
    • For EMGU CV version 2.4 cudart64_42_9.dll, cvextern.dll, npp64_42_9.dll, opencv_calib3dXXX.dll, opencv_contribXXX.dll, opencv_coreXXX.dll, opencv_features2dXXX.dll, opencv_flannXXX.dll, opencv_highguiXXX.dll, opencv_imgprocXXX.dll, opencv_legacyXXX.dll, opencv_mlXXX.dll, opencv_nonfreXXX.dll, opencv_objectdetectXXX.dll, opencv_videoXXX.dll,</code?> where <code>XXX is the OpenCV version number.
    • For Emgu CV version 2.2, 2.3 this means the following dlls: opencv_calib3dXXX.dll, opencv_contribXXX.dll, opencv_coreXXX.dll, opencv_features2dXXX.dll, opencv_highguiXXX.dll, opencv_imgprocXXX.dll, opencv_legacyXXX.dll, opencv_mlXXX.dll, opencv_objectdetectXXX.dll, opencv_videoXXX.dll where XXX is the OpenCV version number.
    • For Emgu CV version <= 2.1, this means the following dlls:cvXXX.dll, cvauxXXX.dll, cxcoreXXX.dll, highguiXXX.dll, opencv_ffmpegXXX.dll, mlXXX.dllcvextern.dll where XXX is the OpenCV version number.
  • The best way to set up your project is:
    • Copy the unmanaged DLLs to your project folder
    • Right click on the project, click Add->Existing Item and select all unmanaged DLLs. Add them to the project.
    • For each of the included Dlls, left click on it, find the "Copy to Output Directory" option and select "Copy if newer"
Are you missing any dependency?

Download Dependency Walker and use it to open the "cvextern.dll" file. Check if any dependency is missing.

I have checked all of above but I still got the Exception

In this case, please try to build and run the examples. After building the examples, try to run the "Hello World" Program.

If "Hello World" runs without any problem, compare it with you project, find the difference in configuration and fix it.

If "Hello World" get the same "The type initializer for 'Emgu.CV.CvInvoke' threw an exception." message, try to find out the InnerException and report it to the discussion forum

Building from Git

If you wants to build the development version of Emgu CV from source code, you can to get it from GIT following instructions on This page.

Prerequisite

  • You will need to install CMAKE in-order to build the unmanaged C++ code (OpenCV and cvextern.dll).

Running the Examples

  • We have the native binary compiled. Now let's compile and run our first dot net core program.
cd Emgu.CV.Example\BuildInfo.NetCore.Console
  • make sure dotnet can load the dynamic library from the current location by typing
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  • Try to compile and run the program
dotnet run

System.DllNotFoundException

If you encounter this exception, there might be missing dependencies. In this case, go to libs\x64 folder (or libs\arm folder, or libs\x86 folder, depends on your system architecture). Run this command

ldd libcvextern.so

and check if there is any dependency missing.

If not, go back to Emgu.CV.Example/BuildInfo.NetCore.Console folder and run this command

gdb dotnet

then, on the (gdb) commandline, type

run run

to debug with GDB.

You can also try

LD_DEBUG=libs dotnet run

to find missing dependencies.

Mac OS

Emgu CV for Mac OS is available under our commercial license. The instructions below applies to the Emgu CV for Mac OS, Professional or Ultimate commercial release.

Adding Emgu CV to your Xamarin Mac App

You can either add Emgu CV to your project by directly adding the binary files, or by adding two projects.

Using binary files

The "libs" folder of the Mac OS (or Pro) release package should contains the files

Emgu.CV.World.NetStandard.dll
osx/libcvextern.dylib

Please add Emgu.CV.World.NetStandard.dll as a reference to your Xamarin Mac App. Deploy "libcvextern.dylib" file to the folder of executable. Then you are ready to use Emgu CV in your Mac OS App.

If the files "Emgu.CV.World.NetStandard.dll" does not exist, you can compile the visual studio solution under "Solution\Mac\Emgu.CV.Mac.Example.sln" to build the dlls.

Using project files

Instead of using the binary files as mention above. You can also add this two projects as references into your existing project:

For v4.2.0

  • Emgu.CV.World\Netstandard\Emgu.CV.World.Netstandard.csproj
  • Emgu.CV.Runtime\Mac\Emgu.CV.Runtime.Mac.shproj

Demos

The demo solution is available under the "Solution\Mac" folder.

iOS

Emgu CV for iOS is only available under our commercial license. The instructions below applies to the Emgu CV for iOS, Professional or Ultimate commercial release.

Adding Emgu CV to your Xamarin iOS App

The "libs" folder of the iOS (or Pro) release package should contains the file

Emgu.CV.World.IOS.dll

Adding this dll file as a reference to your Xamarin iOS App should allow you to use Emgu CV in your App.

Size of the binary

The "Emgu.CV.World.IOS.dll" file size is large. For example, in the 3.4.1 iOS release, this file is 256MB. It contains the native binary for all supported CPU architectures, including those for simulators.

However, if you are building an IPA for app store submission, and is only targeting ARM64 devices, you can select just ARM64 architecture. When the IPA is build, the compiler will strip out all the binary that are not used. It will significantly reduce the final size of the IPA. Depends on the number of functions you used, if you are only targeting a single ARM64 architecture, the final IPA size should be some where around 30-40MB.

Demos

The demo solution is available under the "Solution\iOS" folder.

Android

Emgu CV for Android is only available under our commercial license. The instructions below applies to the Emgu CV for Android, Professional or Ultimate commercial release.

Adding Emgu CV to your Xamarin Android App

The "libs" folder of the Android (or Pro) release package should contains the files

Emgu.CV.World.NetStandard.dll
Emgu.CV.Runtime.Android.dll

Adding this dll file as a reference to your Xamarin Android App should allow you to use Emgu CV in your App.

If the files does not exist, you can compile the visual studio solution under "Solution\Android\Emgu.CV.Android.sln" to build the dlls.

Size of the binary

The "Emgu.CV.World.Android.dll" file size is large. For example, in the 3.4.1 Android release, this file is 70MB. It contains the native binary for all supported CPU architectures.

However, if you are building an app for Google Play Store submission, and is only targeting armeabi-v7 devices, you can select just armeabi-v7 architecture. When the final APK is build, the compiler will strip out all the binary for the architectures that are not used. It will significantly reduce the final size of the APK. Depends on the number of functions you used, if you are only targeting a single armeabi-v7 architecture, the final APK size should be some where around 20-30MB.

Demos

The demo solution is available under the "Solution\Android" folder.
