I’ve been doing a little Facial Recognition lately – then came across the following error “The type initializer for ‘Emgu.CV.CvInvoke’ threw an exception.” after I deployed to azure web apps. Everything was working fine locally.
After doing more digging I realized that the actual .exe files for open cv were not being included in the web deployment – all that was necessary was to include the x86 and x64 directories in the project in the Solution Explorer in the project and presto! Everything works wonderfully.
