Dependency Problems for Windows 7 EBImage and ImageMagic "can't load Error in library.dynam(lib, package, package.lib) : shared library 'EBImage' not found"

I am trying to follow instructions on building from source (since I can't find a working Win7 binary) of a compatible version of the ImageMagic Program. I received the error above when I used the current self installing dll file, ImageMagick-6.6.6-5-Q16-windows-dll.exe I got the error above. I was told by G. Pau works. The installation instructions say: To create a workspace for your requirements, simply go to the VisualMagick\configure folder and open the configure.dsw workspace (for Visual Studio 6) or configure.sln (for Visual Studio 7 or 8). Set the build configuration to Release. However there are no such files in the config directory (that I can see or MS Visual Studio detects). I am sure that I doing something wrong. Has anyone else had this problem?

EBImage works fine on Windows. The issue you're mentioning has been fixed in the last release of Bioconductor, in October. Please use the latest release version of EBImage, version 3.6.0, available here: If it still doesn't work, could please give us the usual stuff: R's sessionInfo(), EBImage, GTK+ and ImageMagick version numbers. > There appear to be no old binaries of 6.5.x to drop back to. There are many, located at Try this one, which works fine with my Windows platform: Hope this helps, Cheers, Greg --- Gregoire Pau EMBL Research Officer On 16/12/10 23:32, Evan Misshula wrote: > Hi Gregiore, > Has any progress been made on this issue? I am a windows user who also installed GTK+ and the latest version of ImageMagick 6.6.6-5-dll.exe before discovering the binaries do not work for windows 7. There appear to be no old binaries of 6.5.x to drop back to.
