Description Diederik Oudshoorn 2005-01-20 08:34:57 UTC
When calling convert.exe under win32, the argument holding the path to the image
contains both forward (/) and backward (\) slashes. The forward(/) slashes
should be replaced by backward (\) ones.

Data from email:
>> convert.exe: unable to open image 
>> `'c:\easyphp\www\mediawiki/images/e/e1/BenR.jpg'': Invalid argument.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-11-29 09:41:08 UTC
Was this the slashes, or the single-quotes? Can you confirm with current version?
Comment 3 Diederik Oudshoorn 2005-11-29 09:51:31 UTC
I'm sorry, but I can't remember the issue very precise. I do remember someone
telling me that DOS is very picky about the syntax  of arguments, and I also do
remember that I eventually solved the problem. The Wiki I build is operational
for almost a year now, but I'm no longer the one maintaining it.

Recent use of ImageMagick convert to create thumbnails under Windows works for
me; trunk and 1.6 function fine, at least.
