I'm currently working on a Visual Studio solution that uses ImageMagick. Currently, if colors.xml is not present in the Debug directory, ImageMagick will throw an error when I try to use a colour other that black. Is it possible to build the ImageMagick DLLs such that colors.xml is not required to be present in the application directory?
Are you using a modern version of ImageMagick? ImageMagick keeps an internal color table in case it cannot find the external colors.xml file. We tried the current release after removing colors.xml and got:
- convert -size 100x100 xc:red red.png
convert: unable to access configure file `colors.xml'.
