Win-OS (localized) install: Set ImageMagick Path

Post by Timbalu » Sat Jan 25, 2014 1:21 pm

When doing a fresh Serendipity installation, and you choose extended install with enabled ImageMagick, one can only submit sucessfully the install routine, without ImageMagick convert path errors, when it says "C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.8.7-Q16/convert.exe". Neither "C.\\Programme\\...", nor "C:/Programme/...", or "C:\Programme/..." seems to work.

Trying to upload an image to the Media Library this will error on convert to thumbnail creation!

If you now change the Image Lib config to "C:\Programme\" and submit, this is taken sucessfully,
and the thumbnail preview conversion will run too.

I think we should do something about this behaviour, while I don't think we can get MS to move.... :)

Ian

Hi!

C:/Blabla/convert.exe should actually work...are you sure you entered the right path?

If it would be a singulary dir name for sure! But part of the Problem is MS internal change to "Program Files" and localized "Programme".

I add that here, before I forget about it:

On WinOS and install, the system diagnostic analysis check shows ImageMagick binary found at C:\Windows\system32/convert.exe, which is not the ImageMagick binary.
It is a MS application which converts FAT volumes to NTFS.

Maybe we should write an exception into the installer for this?!

Uh. that's evil :D

Yeah, ideally we should reject the system32-path...?
