Problem with installation on Windows 10

Post by oleksandr » 2018-11-21T15:32:25-07:00

Hello,

I installed ImageMagick on my Windows 10 using the following installer: ImageMagick-7.0.8-11-Q8-x64-static.exe. Installation completed successfully, but header file MagickWand.h cannot be found on C: drive. I suppose to use MagickWand API from the C program.

ImageMagick is installed in C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-7.0.8-Q8. User directory located on C: drive as well (there are no non-standard system settings).

Could you explain what was done wrong during the installation?

I just checked my Win10 install of 6.9.10 and 7.0.8

Looks like MagickWand.h moved from \include\wand to \include\MagickWand between the versions.

Is it not in \include\MagickWand on your install?

You will not get the header files with the static version of the library.
.NET + ImageMagick = Magick.NET https://github.com/dlemstra/Magick.NET, @MagickNET, Donate

Thank you all for responses!

I've solved the problem by building the library from source.
