no decode delegate on wndws after a succesfull installation

Post by elrasco »

Hi all,
i'm new in this forum and I'm pleased to meet you.

let's go to the issue:
I've downloaded the binary release (ImageMagick-6.8.6-10-Q8-x86-dll.exe) for windows (windows 7 pro with sp1) but although the installation process seemed to be successfull, when I use IM I've this error
c:\Program Files (x86)\ImageMagick-6.8.5-Q16>identify.exe images\affine.png
identify.exe: no decode delegate for this image format `images\affine.png' @ error/constitute.c/ReadImage/552.

these are the delegates istalled:
c:\Program Files (x86)\ImageMagick-6.8.5-Q16>convert -list configure
DELEGATES bzlib freetype jpeg jp2 lcms png tiff x11 xml wmf zlib

when i install the static version all works fine!
the questions are:
- is there a bug in the dll? is there some workaround?
- I need the c header files to build a my own IM application but seems there are no header and dll files in the static version. Is ti true?

Thank you a lot
