UnableToOpenConfigureFile colors.xml and type.xml ImageMagick7.0.8-50

Post by manik_cr24 »

Hello,

convert.exe "C:\temp\google.jpg" ( -background none -pointsize 50 -fill #D3D3D3 label:"TESTING" -rotate 39 -write mpr:tile +delete ) ( +clone -tile mpr:tile -draw "color 0,0 reset" ) -compose over -composite "png:C:\temp\output.png"

I am using the above command for watermark tiling with ImageMagick (Got it from https://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-s ... 69#p173069 ). I'm getting the following warnings after the execution of command.

convert.exe: UnableToOpenConfigureFile `colors.xml' @ warning/configure.c/GetConfigureOptions/699.
convert.exe: UnableToOpenConfigureFile `type.xml' @ warning/configure.c/GetConfigureOptions/699.


Could any one please tell me the possible reason behind this? Would there be any problem?


Thanks a lot,
Manik.

What version of IM, on what platform?

I suspect IM has not been installed properly. Where did you install it from? Did you then move the installed IM to a different directory or computer?

Hi Snibgo,
ImageMagick version is 7.0.8-50.

Thank you,

I suggest that you re-install IM, and check that it no longer raises these warnings.

Hi Snibgo,

Thank you for the suggestion.
I have installed IM in a separate machine and everything worked fine.

I found that colors.xml and type.xml are missing in the older machine.

May I know the use of color.xml and type.xml and what would be the affects in the absence of these files?

Thanks a lot in advance,
Manik Cheruku.
