Mogrify -resize works in cmd.exe but not in .bat file

Post by visitor x » 2014-02-18T04:07:07-07:00

If i do it manually with cmd.exe mogrify works a charm.

However, when I run it from a .bat file it fails. I tried some with convert too just in case but no joy. The error code is always The command "mogrify" is missing or not found.

I thought I had found the answer here but as my images are being created and the active directory is where I want it I don't see how that could be the issue.

I have opened a console, cd to the new directory created by the above, copied and pasted one of the below mogrify commands and it works fine.

So I reckon it's either down to a difference between cmd and bat that I'm not aware of or something in imagemagick. Either way I'm new to both so hoping someone can help me.

Code is as follows:

Code: Select all

set path=icons %date:~0% %time:~0,2%_%time:~3,2%_%time:~6,2%\
md "%path%"
cd %path%

copy %1 "ios_144x144.png"
copy %1 "android_ldpi.png"
copy %1 "android_mdpi.png"
copy %1 "android_hdpi.png"
copy %1 "android_xhdpi.png"
copy %1 "ios_57x57.png"
copy %1 "ios_72x72.png"
copy %1 "ios_114x114.png"
copy %1 "ios_144x144.png"

pause //Check here to see if dir and images created and that command line is now in %path%. In test runs all is okay as far as here

convert -resize 36x36 android_ldpi.png
mogrify -resize 48x48 android_mdpi.png
mogrify -resize 72x72 android_hdpi.png
mogrify -resize 96x96 android_xhdpi.png
mogrify -resize 114x114 ios_114x114.png
mogrify -resize 144x144 ios_144x144.png
mogrify -resize 72x72 ios_72x72.png
mogrify -resize 57x57 ios_57x57.png


echo Verzeichnis %path% fertig.

pause>nul

What version of Windows are you running? What version of IM?

At the command prompt, type

Code: Select all

where mogrify.exe
What is the result?

Also put that line in the bat file. What is the result?

EDIT: the problem is:

Code: Select all

set path=icons %date:~0% %time:~0,2%_%time:~3,2%_%time:~6,2%\
This wipes out your path! Windows will no longer be able to find programs in their usual places.

Call it something different, eg "mypath".

Windows 7, ImageMagick-6.8.8-Q16

C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.8.8-Q16\mogrify.exe is the result. My env var is also set to here

Also put that line in the bat file. What is the result?
