PerlMagick binary install for Windows x64 ?

Post by walterhiggins »

Does anyone know if there's a binary install of PerlMagick for Windows x64 ?
I need to install ImageMagick + PerlMagick for a client on a WinX64 box. It doesn't have DevStudio so I can't build from source.
I've installed ActivePerl 5.10 and tried ImageMagick6.3.8-x32 with no luck (the Image-Magick.ppd file is for x32 only)

We have not tried it but you should be able to edit the PerlMagick PPD file so it will install. There is no reason we can think of why 32-bit PerlMagick should not run on a 64-bit Windows box. You, of course, could build ImageMagick yourself with Visual Studio 2005 and select the 64-bit build. The ImageMagick developers do not provide a 64-bit PerlMagick install just yet due to lack of time/resources.

If I had visual basic I would build PerlMagick from source. If I knew enough to get the 32 bit version working I would.

I'm running the latest 64-bit Perl and 64-bit ImageMagick on Windows 7. I can't get perlmagick working though. Perl and ImageMagick are both absolutely fine. If any one can tell me how to edit the PMM file or whatever, or better still has a 64 bit dll, then i would be extremely grateful.
