I'm interested in develop some programs that use OpenCV but I want this to run on ARM environment.

Can be virtualized the ARM under Windows environment with VMWare or VirtualBox or something?

Thanks in advance!

You simply can't virtualize an ARM if you're on PC, but you can emulate it :) – Geoffroy Sep 3 '12 at 8:52
Virtualization is used to run a guest OS under a supervisor or host OS without the guest OS knowing that it doesn't have full control of the computer. The ARM is a processor (hardware), not an OS (software). – ronalchn Sep 3 '12 at 8:54

As pointed Geoffroy, you can't virtualize ARM, but you can emulate it. You can try QEMU - generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.

Plus one for Qemu :) – Geoffroy Sep 3 '12 at 9:14

Use this emulator from Microsoft -

+1. I forgot for this. :-) – Xearinox Sep 3 '12 at 9:13
Depending on what OP want to do, he may quickly be limited with this emulator, as it is conceived to work with limited functionality. – Geoffroy Sep 3 '12 at 9:13

I've found this!

It's an image with Raspberry Pi with QEMU. You only have to double click on run.bat and follow instructions.

Runs perfect.

Thanks for your answers!
