ImageMagick 7 Windows builds?

Post by BryantMoore » 2012-09-25T12:31:49-07:00

Does anyone know where I can find builds of ImageMagick 7 for Windows? I've never built a program before and I would like to play with HDRI mode.

As far a I know there are no Windows archives of binaries and no precompiled HDRI versions of IM for any platform

Will Visual Studio Express 2012 work for compiling ImageMagick on Windows?

I'm just going to build for Cygwin, I've installed autoconf, make and gcc... we'll see what happens. :)

AFAIK, IM7 is now HDRI by default, so if there are recent IM7 builds that do not mess with the default configuration, I would guess that they are HDRI.

I know that's kind of annoying, but the easiest route would appear to me to install linux in a virtual machine within Windows, and run IM7 (or IM6 compiled in HDRI) inside it.
Some linux distros have "easy install inside Windows" pathways. (Ubuntu? Linux Mint? Others? I don't follow this stuff very carefully.)
Although apparently Windows 8 puts up serious road blocks.

Also, why don't you install IM6 in HDRI mode first? Almost everything is backported.

With IM7, try plain vanilla ./configure first.

Just managed a V6 Win32 compile with turbo-jpeg, png, tiff, xml, fftw, HDRI and multi-thread using TDM-GCC 32-bit. I dunno that it could be so difficult..... :shock:

@Henry: \o/
If you could document the process, I'm sure many people would be very thankful.

It's a start. If you post your effort, hopefully you'll get help.
