Sounds good, and good that the docs were enough to get you going. It's just the nature of free open source that you need to do some legwork. I spent maybe 100 hours over just two weeks preparing the latest couple versions, so imagine having to do even more work.
Any version of VCS from maybe two years back should come with a compatible pre-built OpenCV dll, so you only need the OpenCV headers as long as you have that previous VCS. You could probably do a 64-bit build without changing anything but the couple required libraries (and 64-bit Qt + compiler).
