I've had some problems whilst following the tutorial: -[^]
Tried the following code in visual studio
#include <cv.h> /* required to use OpenCV */
#include <highgui.h> /* required to use OpenCV's highgui */
void main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
    IplImage* image=0; /* pointer to an image */
    if(argv[1] != 0) image = cvLoadImage(argv[1], 1); // 1 for color

    if(image != 0) {
        cvNamedWindow("Display", CV_WINDOW_AUTOSIZE); // create a window
        cvShowImage("Display", image); // show image in window
        cvWaitKey(0); // wait until user hits a key

Got this output

It appears to me that a file cannot be found in your project.

Alternatively you could try the forum/author of the tutorial.
Okay..assuming you've got all the libraries, PATH and links setup for OpenCv...

Build the that you get an executable in the debug folder
*the code is correct

Now when in dos prompt, under correct location(e.g ect ect\debug) type in filename.exe imagefilename.filetype

the imagefilename.filetype will be identified by the argc and argv.
