Did you see the note at the bottom of the install page about

If you have any problems, install the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) or Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64). 64-bit Windows requires both packages (x86 & x64).

Yes, I have both the x86 and x64 installed.

I just tried the static version ImageMagick-6.7.6-1-Q8-windows-static.exe which works, so at least I have a work around.

There seems to be a problem with the dynamic inking in the dynamic version.

Glad you got something to work. Unfortunately, I know little about Windows (I am a Mac user). So I know next to nothing about installing IM on Windows or the difference between static and dynamic installs.

well building IM static makes configure work, however i can't link it into my app then (dunno why).

but why do i need delegates at all, when i just want to create an Image using a size and a color?

why doesn't he find the mod.dlls, no matter what configure options i set?

it doesn't work anymore, since the prebuilt libs changed to VS 2010 compiler

I think at this time you might want to post your problem on the Bugs forum.
