I used to work with Image Magick / Imagick, and time is come to update ùy PHP to PHP7.4.1.
I downloaded, because I needed a VC15 compiled version of imageMagick, BUT it seems that package has a problem...
When using it in CLI, I got error messages such "UnableToOpenConfigureFile delegates.xml & magic.xml"...
The fact is that they are actually missing from the package...

As a result, the results to my queries are not valid (CMYK files are seens as sRGB, etc...).

When linking with Imagick, PHP seems Imagick, so the library os properly working, BUT the issue remains and is exactly the same than when using image magick in CLI.

Just to test, I copied delegates.xml from the official 7.0.9 version of imagemagick, and now, it seems to work ! (However, I still have the magic.xml error, I will probably find it in github...)

So... the thing is: it SEEMS I fixed the issue, by copying missing files from the official package, however, there must be a cleaner way to do so...
Could you maybe release a complete and working package for 7.0.7 x86 vc15?
Otherwise, what is the solution to my issue ? Maybe some CLI/PHP config to specify there is no config to look for ?
One thing is sure: as it is, does not seem to work without doing something... we had not to do on official releases...

Thanks for helping !

Test script:
identify.exe -format "%[colorspace]\n" "test.pdf"

With official version of ImageMagick (6.9 or even 7.0.9), it returns:

With packaged vc15 version:
identify.exe: UnableToOpenConfigureFile 'magic.xml' @warning/configure.c/GetConfigureOptions/714.
identify.exe: UnableToOpenConfigureFile 'delegates.xml' @warning/configure.c/GetConfigureOptions/714.
identify.exe: LengthAndFileSizeDoNotMatch 'C:\XXX\Temps\magick-219608xxx' @ warning/bmp.c/ReadBMPImage/821
identify.exe: LengthAndFileSizeDoNotMatch 'C:\XXX\Temps\magick-219608xxx' @ warning/bmp.c/ReadBMPImage/821
identify.exe: LengthAndFileSizeDoNotMatch 'C:\XXX\Temps\magick-219608xxx' @ warning/bmp.c/ReadBMPImage/821
identify.exe: LengthAndFileSizeDoNotMatch 'C:\XXX\Temps\magick-219608xxx' @ warning/bmp.c/ReadBMPImage/821

And with packaged vc15 version + delegates.xml file found in official 7.0.9:
identify.exe: UnableToOpenConfigureFile 'magic.xml' @warning/configure.c/GetConfigureOptions/714.

This is the CLI, but with PHP/Imagick, result is the same (we cannot see error messages, but we see it returns sRGB instead of CMYK, on 7.0.7 vc15, if delegates.xml file is missing.

deps packages are generally not supposed to be used in production;
instead they are meant for development purposes (especially to
build PECL packages).  For all built-in image formats, the PECL
package should be sufficient.  If you need to support image
formats for which there are no built-in codecs, it's probably best
to use an official binary from; that should solve
the missing delegates.xml issue.  I don't know what magic.xml
would be used for; maybe one of the Imagick package maintainers
can clarify.

Thank you for your answer.

The thing is: I tried the available official version of Image Magick on, but using it, imagick extension does not load...
I see 2 possibilities:
* The only Imagick version available for php 7.4 (imagick v3.4.4)  is not compatible with Image Magick 7.0.9
* The official Image Magick is not compiled in VC15, making the dll not to be recognized by imagick...
I suspect the problem is the 2nd option (except my issue, imagick is properly loaded with image magick 7.0.7 vc15 (pecl/deps revision).

So... This is why I'd like to find a working vc15 version of image magick, but it seems I won't find it on the official website...
