Hello All,

I am trying to install perlmagick on windows and i am unable to proceed further.

Currently i have done the following:

1. Make for windows is installed from the URL:
2. ImageMagicK is successfully installed Version information is: ImageMagick-6.7.3-10-Q16-windows-x64-dll.exe downloaded from the site :
3. Downloaded perlmagick PerlMagick-6.72 it was real pain to get this file but even then i missed the URL from where i downloaded :(.

Current state:
1. I am able to install imagemagick successfully.
2. After which i attempted to nmake the build and it says: "Note (probably harmless): No library found for -lCORE_DB_magick_.lib"

Now can anyone of you experts please guide me on this how to proceed further. I am basically a test engineer and i have very less or minimal knowledge of any of the programming languages. This is my first approach in performing automation of deleting few pixels from the images so that the tesseractocr.exe extract only strings other then considering any small images as characters. I am bacially performing this to automate localization for 30 different localization languages. I beg few minutes of your valuable time here to help me out to proceed further. Thanks in advance for spending time to understand my requirement. To be frank with you i spent last 7 days in installing this perlmagick and finally no output please help me !.

I strongly belive its very simple job and due to my less knowledge i am unable to proceed please help me..

When you install the ImageMagick Windows binary, the installer includes a screen with several install options. Check the one that discusses PerlMagick. Done. That is, the installer will install PerlMagick for you and its ready to accept your PerlMagick scripts.

Hello Site Admin,

Thank you so much for your replay.
I uninstall the installed product and reinstalled the product by selecting all the options which includes PerlMagic installation. After completing the installation a window of installation set up suggest to test the installation of ImageMagicK. I used CMD to run the commands and i get the following error poping up... :(

IMDisplay MFC Application has stopped working
1. Close the program
2. Debug the program

Also i did execute the sample program provided in the site to check the basic working of PerlMagic API with ImageMagick, where it’s not able to load the required library file from the C:\PXPerl\lib i have the following error message for your reference and to help me what action to be taken...

Can't locate loadable object for module Image::Magick in @INC (@INC contains: C:/PXPerl/lib C:/PXPerl/site/lib .) at line 1
Compilation failed in require at line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 1. ----- code is as bellow:

Code: Select all

	use Image::Magick;
$q = Image::Magick->new;
$x = $q->Read("model.gif", "logo.gif", "rose.gif");
warn "$x" if $x;
$x = $q->Crop(geom=>'100x100+100+100');
 warn "$x" if $x;
$x = $q->Write("x.gif");
warn "$x" if $x;	
Thank you so much for sparing your time in helping me.

Thanks and Regards,

PerlMagick requires the latest release of ActiveState Perl. Do you have ActiveState Perl installed? If you want to use another Perl distribution, grab the ImageMagick Windows source distribution and unpack. Next type
  • cd ImageMagick-6.7.3-10/PerlMagick
    perl Makefile.nt
    nmake install
