How to install ImageMagick 6.5.3-8 to XAMPP

Here is a Tutorial on how to install ImageMagick with XAMPP.....

Step 1:

Install ImageMagick 6.5.3-8
Install to directory: C:\xampp\imagemagick
or your xampp directory\imagemagick

Step 2:
Install Visual C++ Distributable

Step 3:
Copy this file to your XAMPP PHP Extensions Directory
Example: C:\xampp\php\ext

Step 4:
Open Your PHP directory and find your php.ini configuration
comment your extension=php_imagick.dll if it is not already.
Example: ;extension=php_imagick.dll

Now add this line below the ;extension=php_imagick.dll

So it looks like this

Now restart your server or system.

This works for Windows 2000, XP Home/Pro, and Windows Server 2003 All Versions.
This has not been tested to work for X64 bit systems.
If you got this to work for X64 systems post it here.....

I just had to say thanks for this post! it helped me out a lot.. I was getting frustrated with not having imagemagick installed on my testing machine and you'r post allowed me to install it, and get it working correctly.. The only thing I didnt do was install Visual C++ Distributable, I might at a later date, but I got imagemagick to resize images and thats all I needed it to do :) appreciate it tons!
