Wand installation problems (Python)

Post by vikebo » 2016-08-30T06:05:17-07:00

Hello,

New to ImageMagick and trying to use Wand from Python, but have some problems related to installation.

System: Win 7 Pro, 64-bit, Python 2.7.12 32-bit

First installed 64-bit version of ImageMagick 7.0.2-10 with development headers as explained here:
http://docs.wand-py.org/en/0.4.3/guide/ ... ck-windows
Then used "pip install Wand", but the result from
from wand.image import Image
was:
File "c:\Python27\lib\site-packages\wand\api.py", line 206, in <module>
'Try to install:\n ' + msg)
ImportError: MagickWand shared library not found.
You probably had not installed ImageMagick library.

Then tried adding the MAGICK_HOME environment variable, with the same result.

Found this:

and tried to uninstall and install 32-bit version of ImageMagick, but the result is still the same.

Also tried uninstalling Wand and reinstalling as well as rebooting, but get the same error.

Not sure what to try next.

Uninstall and reinstall 6.9.5-8 (which was the oldest version I could find at http://www.imagemagick.org/download/binaries/) seems to be the solution.
