Magick++ doesn't work in Windows 7

Post by 14K » 2013-01-18T07:17:00-07:00

Your ImageMagick++ doesn't work in windows 7, i've been trying to make it work for 4 days but have no luck and you people don't even bother to respond to user's problem.

There is no proper tutorial that explain how to run your first Magic++ code in windows, which i suppose there should.

I've been having a lot of problems..I need a proper guidance to install and make it work as i need to write some serious assignments.

First i tried executing the code with Visual C++ 2010 and it continously give different errors and as it turns out there were lot of settings to be done inside a project linker option to make it run. Then there was an another error which can be fixed when the library files are defined under Project > Properties > Linker > Input > Additional Dependencies.
I did everything and every error were fixed.

But Even now it is giving different types of error , its been 4 days...
should i install windows XP ? will it work there ?
Kindly at least guide me

We develop under Windows 7. We're using Visual Studio 10 Professional. Perhaps the express version is missing features that prevent you from compiling.

We just downloaded the ImageMagick Windows source. We ran the configure program and opened the project with VS2010. We choose the release version and built. It compiled without complaint. Also when we clicked the Magick++_demos/button workspace, it compiled and ran without complaint under Windows 7. We're not sure why its failing for you.

It shouldn't matter, ImageMagick is compiled for both. But we're using Windows 7 64-bit.

Thank you Sir for your response, 1 last question.
Which exact Magick++ file you've downloaded for windows, I've tried almost all available Windows installers (both 32-bit and 64-bit) ?

and which configure program did you run ? one for the conversion purpose ?

The configure program is used if you install ImageMagick from source. We use both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of ImageMagick in our testing.
