I understand support for Image Magick 6 is experimental, but since you asked for failure reports, here you go. 

Server: Apache 2.0.50
PHP: version 5.0.1, running as an ISAPI module
Image Magic Version: ImageMagick-6.0.8-Q16, standard installation for the Windows binary using the MSI installer, all default file paths used.
iMagic version: binary from - Win32, Thread safe - dated 09/25/2004 12:20:01

Upon starting Apache:

Apache.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point DestroyDrawingWand could not be located in the dynamic link library CORE_RL_magick_.dll.

Followed by: 


PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic link library 'C:\php-5.0.1-Win32\ext\php_imagick.dll' - The specified procedure could not be found.

I have encountered the same problem, after i have restarted the machine, all works well. it seems that imagicks adds a path to PATH environmental variable, so if you try to run apache.exe from commandline it works then, but for running it as service it seems you have to restart the machine.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.
Unfortunately you are not using a current version of PHP -- 
the problem might already be fixed. Please download a new
PHP version from

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
versions of PHP, please change the PHP version on this bug report
to the version you tested and change the status back to "Open".
Again, thank you for your continued support of PHP.
