Error message, can't find configure file, mingw version of IM

Post by PaulAThompson » 2018-02-24T16:22:02-07:00

I am using ImageMagick under minGW emulation.

I installed it by

pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-imagemagick

in the msys2 console. All went well.

After installing, I got an error

convert.exe: unable to find configure file 'configure.xml': stuff

I found the file under

/mingw64/lib/ImageMagick.7.0.6/config-Q16HDRI

I copied it to

/mingw64/etc/ImageMagick-7

After that, the error message went away.

Perhaps the binary for MINGW configuration of its files has had a directory change along the way of changes for IM 7.
