Hi Cygwin List,
I'm running Windows 7, 64 bit, with Cygwin 64-bit installed from the 2.871
installer. The Imagemagick "convert" command returns the prompt
immediately, even when followed by gibberish, e.g. "convert adsfasdf". I
first observed the problem with Imagemagick 188.8.131.52-3. I tried
uninstalling and reinstalling Imagemagick, and restarting Cygwin, and the
problem remained. I also tried downgrading to 184.108.40.206-4, and the problem
When I start convert.exe directly from windows Explorer I get the pop-up
error "the procedure entry point cmsCreateContext could not be located in
the dynamic link library cyglcms2-2.dll". I also tried reinstalling
liblcms2-2 to no avail.
No problem for me.
Please note that cyglcms2-2.dll is a indirect dependency of
convert so you may need to reinstall libgs9 and libMagickCore6_2
$ cygcheck convert
$ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cyglcms2-2.dll
$ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cyggs-9.dll
$ cygcheck -f /usr/bin/cygMagickCore-6.Q16-2.dll
I know in the past this problem has occurred because of missing XOrg DLLs
(https://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/2006-11/msg00001.html) but I'm not
sure where to look for those DLLs now.
please also note that there is a system utility called in the same way
so be sure to have cygwin /usr/bin directory in the PATH
before any system one.
