I am posting this to help all of the Noob's like me still on Windows Boxes. 1. I was able to make this work on Win7 without building from source. I was able to use the latest release of ImageMagic : ImageMagick-6.6.6-5-Q16-windows-dll.exe 2. One dependency not listed (that I could see) was on an R package called abind which is a generalization of the rbind and cbind functions 3. You need to make sure that your R installation is up to date (mine below 2.10 and the latest version of EBImage is for 2.12) 4. If anyone runs into trouble with this issue, I am happy to relate what I learned.

I tried to follow the direction to the best of my limited ability and I tried to highlight where I was unsure. Please let me know if additional information would help. 1. gtk2-runtime-2.16.6-2010-05-12-ash.exe --- from http://gtk-win.sourceforge.net/home/index.php/Downloads I think the link you gave me only had the source code and I am not sure how to compile it.

ImageMagick-6.6.6-5-Q16-windows-dll.exe ---from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php The instructions say "During installation, the checkboxes `Update exe- cutable search path' and `Install developement headers and libraries' must be checked on." I clicked "Install development headers and libraries for C and C++" but there was no option that I saw for `Update exe- cutable search path'. I did tick 'Add application directory to your system directory', I am not sure if that is the same thing. The png file of the option screen is attached. 3.http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php ---from http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/EBImage.html I used the intall packages from local zip files on the R gui. > utils:::menuInstallLocal() package 'EBImage' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked > library("EBImage") Loading required package: abind Error in library.dynam(lib, package, package.lib) : shared library 'EBImage' not found In addition: Warning message: package 'EBImage' was built under R version 2.12.0 Error: package/namespace load failed for 'EBImage' > 4.

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: http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/EBImage.html 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 http://image_magick.veidrodis.com/image_magick/windows/ Try this one, which works fine with my Windows platform: http://image_magick.veidrodis.com/image_magick/windows/ImageMagick-6.6 .1-4.zip Hope this helps, Cheers, Greg --- Gregoire Pau EMBL Research Officer http://www.embl.de/~gpau/ 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.
