When installing a recent binary release, e.g. ImageMagick-7.0.2-5-Q16-x64-dll.exe from here, only a magick.exe is installed - I assume convert got renamed because of the name conflicts with windows system tools (?)

I suggest extending gm to use either convert or magick depending on the used operating system when working with require('gm').subClass({imageMagick: true}).

For now install ImageMagick with "Install legacy utilities" is OK. But the ImageMagick real change the command name.

The problem exists on windows not only with convert cmd, but with others like identify etc.
Please add "magick" to cmd on windows. Thx.
