I've installed ImageMagic package of mingw-w64-x86_64-imagemagick and encountered a problem:

$ convert --version
C:/msys64/mingw64/bin/convert.exe: error while loading shared libraries: libMagickWand-7.Q16HDRI-5.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've confirmed the dll file exsists in my filesystem as follows.

Does anyone have any ideas?
I'm using mingw on Windows 10 64 bit environment.

Run convert in cmd, not msys2 shell and it will show you real missing library

Thank you for your reply.

I had to install mingw-w64-x86_64-libxml2, and it works fine now.

Thank you very much!

It still needs to be added to the dependencies so other users don't encounter this issue.

Hello @Alexpux , sorry for commenting under a closed issue.

I want to know why the missing library error messages are different in cmd and msys2 shell, can you please tell me?
