Creating the Project

Please run one of the demo programs from the "start menu", in order to verify that you are able to open a video capture device and display a live image.

Start a new project by selecting "New" in the "File" menu. In the dialog that then appears, select "MFC AppWizard(exe)". Enter "FirstStep" into the "Project name" field and choose the location at which the project directory should be created. The paths to the required include and library files depend on the location of this directory. The examples shown here assume the directory is created in the "IC Imaging Control" top level directory, which is "Program Files\The Imaging Source Europe GmbH\IC Imaging Control 3.0" by default. Press "OK" to confirm the dialog.
